The military's North American Aerospace Defense Command sent a F-16 fighter jet and a Coast Guard helicopter to intercept the plane, he said.The F-16 flew with the plane until it landed at Witham Field in nearby Stuart... Five hours later, F-16s intercepted a Lancair 320, a smaller craft that seats two passengers

It is wonderful to be king and queen on our dime.
They would just circle the slower plane. Hovering wouldn’t work as the time they can do that is very short, for example the harrier can only hover a few minutes before the engines overheat. Depending on conditions of course.
A helicopter would be a much better chase platform for a cessna. Of course a brisk walk might also work.
It damned sure is.
Can you imagine a couple of weekend flyers actually had the nerve to fly over Obama’s vacation spot? The nerve of these people. Doesn’t everyone know that Obama is in town on a certain day or on a certain golf course and cannot be flown over?
I love watching them fly. Unfortunately the air shows will probably be cancelled due to cost.
So, we can’t afford the fuel to allow an aircraft carrier to get underway, but Barry has no problem with fighter jets chasing after small personal aircraft.
...no drones available?
If one of these had been loaded with explosives or Chem/Bio it would have been "Recreation Place Violence" and not serious, anyway.
I hope it snows and he is using white golf balls. The audacity of this S..theal using our assets, yes the plane belongs to the US not his royal family, to fly about like he were taking a cab. The difference of course is the meter is never running on this bum.
Today’s rag was complaining about the cost of the senate barber shop that costs the taxpayers about 400K in subsidies to run each year. That is pocket change to the costs this clown runs up and no one bothers to look or care. I cannot recall any President in history using the AF1 like a cab hopping about the countryside at his whim. The documentary capitol of this place is in NE Virginia, that is his worksite...not Florida, Hawaii or any other place outside of the DC area.
Barry can’t hit A golf ball hard enough into the wind to keep it from coming back to him. 10 yards out 20 yards back. He has to hit with the wind to get his pansy-a$$ swing to hit it 30 yards out.
DING DING DING we have a winner!! Ain't it great being royalty!?
Black men don’t ski
But Black Women do?
Could have been worse; just be glad he didn't drag Al Gore along, or you'd be shoveling snow.
Come on man,
D.C. In February?
This assclown is a star and can’t be expected to stay in that cold when Florida,Hawaii Etc are availabe.
Besides, obammy is a rockstar or something.

If you really need to know where Kid Kenya is during one of his frequent disappearances, permit me to suggest that you look for Mr. Love.
