(Liberty Bell) – Joe Biden and his wife were evacuated from their vacation house in Delaware on Saturday after a plane triggered the emergency action.
The pilot of the plane was not following a flight plan at the time of the incident, officials say, according to news reports.
Shortly before 1 pm, Saturday afternoon, Joe and Jill Biden were moved to a fire station after a small, white private plane was seen above their beach house, CBS reported.
Since the Bidens were vacationing in Delaware, the airspace over his Rehoboth Beach house was restricted for the duration of their stay.

NBC reported that the North American Aerospace Defense Command said the Cessna 172 aircraft was not following a flight plan and added that the pilot was not in radio contact with any air traffic controllers.
Two F-15 fighter jets and an MH-65 helicopter were sent to mitigate the situation. The jets made visual contact with the plane and then escorted it out of the restricted airspace.
The jets stayed with the plane until it landed at a local airport around 1:11 pm, about 20 minutes after it was spotted.
Turns out the pilot of the Cessna had no idea the airspace was restricted and it was a simple case of misunderstanding.
Thank goodness it wasn’t anything more serious and the disruption to Biden’s vacation was minimal. He deserves some down time at the beach after the wonderful job he’s been doing for all of us Americans. (*SARCASM*)
One Twitter user pointed out how the mainstream media dragged President Trump through the mud when he was briefly moved to a White House bunker in response to a mob of protesters gathering outside the property in May 2020.
As we all recall, those so-called protesters turned out to be violent thugs who terrorized, destroyed and vandalized US cities for the duration of the summer and fall that year. Moving President Trump was the smart thing to do, especially because many of the unhinged rioters blamed Trump personally for the death of George Floyd, a junkie and petty criminal.
Remember when they Laughed at Trump when he went to the White House bunker because of Riots outside?
How about Biden scrambling Fighter Jets and running to his Safe house because some guy got lost in his Cessna?

CNN reported, the Secret Service provided a summary of the emergency incident.
“Shortly before 1 p.m. today a privately owned aircraft entered the restricted airspace over Rehoboth Delaware after mistakenly entering a secured area,” Secret Service spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said in a statement.
“The aircraft was immediately escorted out of the restricted airspace,” he said.
According to the statement, the pilot had made an error.
“Preliminary investigation reveals the pilot was not on the proper radio channel, was not following the NOTAMS (Notice to Airmen) that had been filed and was not following published flight guidance.”
The statement also revealed that the Secret Service planned to speak with the pilot.
“The United States Secret Service will be interviewing the pilot.”
Hopefully Biden has a delightful visit to the beach over the weekend. It must be hard work destroying the greatest country in the world.
