Plane Forced Down During Bush Visit

Plane Forced Down During Bush Visit Jet fighters intercepted a civilian plane that apparently entered restricted air space during the President's visit to Philadelphia on Wednesday.

The incident with the civilian plane happened around 5 p.m., sources told NBC 10, just after President George W. Bush was in Center City Philadelphia for a fundraising dinner.

Bush returned to Washington at around 7 p.m.

The civilian Cessna plane was escorted to Cross Keys airport in southern New Jersey while the greater Philadelphia area was under a flight restriction.

Monroe Township police at Cross Keys Airport in Gloucester County were talking with the pilot. The Pentagon has been notified about the incident.

Earlier Wednesday, Bush toured the Limerick Power Plant and gave a brief speech about alternative energy sources.
