When rogue airplanes invade presidential airspace, it can be one of the biggest threats to a president’s safety. The Today Show decided to ride along with the Air National Guard, who watches over that airspace like a hawk.
During this exercise, a group of F-16 fighter jets swooped in to engage a potentially threatening Cessna. The host quickly witnessed the process of deterring a threat and also learned how the Guard’s “Headbutt Maneuver” works.
If, after all this, the rogue airplane still doesn’t listen, that’s when things get serious. Let’s just say it would not be a happy landing for this meddlesome aircraft. Whoa.
