Biden evacuated after plane entered airspace near beach home

Biden evacuated after plane entered airspace near beach home



There was a brief evacuation of President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill after a small private plane breached restricted airspace near Biden’s vacation home in Delaware on Saturday.

According to the White House, Vice President Biden and his family were not in danger and that all necessary precautions had been taken. They came home to Rehoboth Beach after the situation had been examined.

Officials with the Secret Service said that after “mistakenly approaching a guarded area,” the plane was quickly escorted out of restricted territory. Initial inquiry indicated that the pilot was not on the right radio channel and was not following published flying advice. The agency stated that it would interview the pilot.

Before Vice President Joe Biden’s excursion to the beach, the FAA issued flight limitations, as is customary for presidential trips outside of Washington. The restrictions include a 10-mile no-fly zone surrounded by a 30-mile no-fly zone.

According to a tweet from a CBS News reporter, he witnessed Biden driving to a fire station in Rehoboth Beach. The president’s official press entourage did not ride in the presidential motorcade.


Before taking off, pilots are required by law to check their route for any flying restrictions. Despite this, inadvertent breaches of airspace, especially around temporary prohibited zones, are prevalent.

It is common practice for US military aircraft and Coast Guard helicopters to intercept any planes that attempt to circumvent presidential flight restrictions. Police redirect intercepted aircraft to a nearby airfield where officers question the pilots, who may be subject to criminal or civil penalties.
