An F-15 fighter jet intercepted a civilian plane on September 21 as it entered restricted airspace over New York City. The incident attracted a lot of attention as US President Joe Biden is in the city and the UN General Assembly is taking place. NBC New York.

The Federal Aviation Administration said it had launched an investigation into the incident. As a result, it will take appropriate enforcement action.

NORAD (North American Air Defense Command) tried to contact a civilian pilot who was flying a private Cessna 172 single-engine aircraft. But the pilot did not respond to radio calls. The F-15 responded when the Cessna was about 20 nautical miles (37,4 km) east of Manhattan. The plane entered the restricted area around 11:40 am, from which it was removed less than 20 minutes later.
