WACO could have meant "What A Cook-Out" had this guy gotten fragged by those jets.

Nice misleading headline.

He was interviewed and sent on his way. He probably didn't know the president was back home. I didn't.

I live in the area, and the fighters scared the *#$& out of me last night. Not your usual sound from the night sky around here.

Incompetant idiot. The restricted areas are NOTAM'd well in advance and pilots are required to check them before flight. Fine him a couple of thou and I'll bet he checks 'em next time.

Are they sure it was a plane and not a MOONBAT?

Two fighter jets forced a small plane to land after the pilot flew too close to President Bush's ranch in central Texas while he was spending the weekend there

Wonder if they had to clean out the aircraft after they landed at Waco? Having an F-15 show up on your wing, and another at your six, makes a very effective sphincter relaxer both the anal and bladder ones.

Didn't something similar happen after 911 out in that area, maybe close to the ranch. Seems a local took his plane out of the barn for a fly around. He was led back to the ground by a fighter jet or two. Maybe someone else remembers the incident.

I am taking Flight Lessons in the area. The NOTAMS are very specific when GW is Home. The air traffic controllers are very specific and will direct your flight correction away from P-49......He was just stupid,stupid stupid.

The possibility of fighters overtaking my little Piper scares me to double check the NOTAMS. Keeps that pucker factor down to a minimum.
