Small plane violates Obama airspace

An official with NORAD said an F-22 fighter jet that was patrolling the airspace around Chicago intercepted an aircraft that came into a restricted area Thursday.

At 10:30 a.m. Chicago time, the fighter jet, which was already in the air over Gary, Ind., came across a multi-colored Cessna in air space that is part of a no-fly zone due to the president's visit to Chicago.

That small plane then exited the area, NORAD said, without radio communications.

An FAA spokeswoman said the small, private aircraft landed in DeKalb. No other information was released.
