President Joe Biden was evacuated to a safe location Saturday afternoon after a plane entered restricted airspace near his Delaware beach home.
President Biden was being taken to a fire station when a light aircraft violated restricted airspace over the president’s home in Rehoboth Beach, the authorities said Daily mail.
CBS News White House reporter Bo Erickson wrote on Twitter: “At 12:52 I saw @POTUS Motorcade races into Rehoboth Fire Station. I saw President Biden through the window of an SUV. Just ahead of the motorcade, I saw two military jets flying low over the beach town. The press pool is not with the motorcade.”
A neighbor said a small white plane flew near Biden’s home around 12:45 p.m., then two military-style jets ramped up and flew to the area.
The 79-year-old president was spotted in the back seat of an SUV as his motorcade sped away from the beach house.
Rehoboth Beach Fire Chief Chuck Snyder told Erickson the Secret Service informed him at 12:48 p.m. that the president and first lady were being taken to the station “because of a threat.”
Snyder said President Biden and Jill Biden stayed in the SUV while it was parked in the fire station garage. He added that the fire service had previously taken part in drills with the Secret Service in case the president needed to be evacuated.
A White House official told the White House Press Poll: “A small private plane has entered restricted airspace, all statements are in error and precautions have been taken. There was no threat to the president or his family,” CBS News senior white correspondent for the house said Ed O’Keefe.
The US Secret Service gave one expression to the incident:
Just before 1 p.m. today, a privately owned aircraft flew into restricted airspace over Rehoboth, Delaware after mistakenly entering a secured area. The plane was immediately escorted out of the restricted airspace. The preliminary investigation determined that the pilot was not on the correct radio channel, failed to follow submitted NOTAMS (Notice to Airmen) and failed to follow published flight instructions. United States Intelligence will question the pilot.
The President’s motorcade reportedly left the fire station at 1:29 p.m
