    Our overworked leader Barack is taking some much needed R&R in Fl. Playing golf with his peeps.

    Yahoo news is reporting that a Cessna 152 flew into (TFR) restricted airspace, around his Lordship. They are also saying F16s escorted the 152 and forced the plane to land. I don't know about you put I would like to see an F16 escort a 152. LMAO. I just got this funny image in my head, an F16 flying wing on a 152!! I've heard of guys dropping the flaps on a 152 in high head wind and having a negative ground speed. LOL Can't help but laugh with the thought of an F16 jockey trying to fly that slow.

    Thought you pilots might enjoy.

    I'm sure the 152 pilot isn't laughing right about now.

    It was restricted airspace just while odombofurherer was playing golf. The pilot probably did not get the memo.

    The pilot is responsible for obtaining ALL information relating to the flight. These presidential TFRs have been the new "normal" since nine-eleven. "paranioa", I agree......welcome to the brave new world. When the president visited Seattle a couple years ago they not only grounded all the general aviation in the Puget Sound area, they closed off all the traffic on I-5 as well.
