>>JEFF ROSSEN IS HERE TO SHOW US.>>GOOD MORNING. IT’S MONDAY. WE’RE ALL ACUTELY AWARE. BACK AT WORK. AND SO IS THE PRESIDENT. HE SPENDS MANY WEEKENDS AWAY FROM WASHINGTON AND INCLUDING THIS PAST WEEKEND. WHEN HE’S NOT AT THE WHITE HOUSE, THERE’S A MASSIVE MILITARY EFFORT TO KEEP HIM SAFE. THE ENTIRE AREA FROZEN. ONE OF THE BIGGEST THREATS FROM THE AIR, PLANES GETTING TOO CLOSE. WHAT HAPPENS WHEN A ROGUE AIRCRAFT FLIES NEAR THE PRESIDENT AND WON’T LEAVE THE AIR SPACE. THIS MORNING, WE’RE GETTING ACCESS UP CLOSE WITH FIGHTER JETS IN ACTION.>>PRESIDENT TRUMP IS ON THE MOVE. SPENDING TIME AWAY FROM THE WHITE HOUSE, TO HIS MAR-A-LAGO REPORT, AND HIS GOLF COURSE IN NEW JERSEY. ON THE GROUND, HEAVY SECURITY YOU CAN SEE. IN THE AIR, IT’S JUST AS INTENSE. BUT MOST OF US NEVER GET TO SEE IT, UNTIL NOW. THE AIR NATIONAL GUARD PROTECTING THE SKIES AND GIVING US RARE ACCESS.>>WHEN THE PRESIDENT MOVES AROUND, THE FEDERAL AVIATION ADMINISTRATION PUTS A TEMPORARY FLIGHT RESTRICTION IN PLACE AND WE DEFEND IT.>>Reporter: WHAT HAPPENS IF AN UNIDENTIFIED AIRCRAFT FLIES INTO THE NO-FLY ZONE, RIGHT INTO THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. WE SET UP A DEMO WITH THIS CESSNA AND THE AIR NATIONAL GUARD. I’M GOING TO BE INSIDE THIS CESSNA AND WE’RE GOING ROGUE. WE’RE GOING TO FLY INTO THAT NO-FLY ZONE AND SEE HOW THE AIR NATIONAL GUARD DOES IT. THEY SCRAMBLE THE FIGHTER JETS NEAR US AND HOW THEY GET US DOWN TO THE GROUND AND SAFE. WE BARREL DOWN THE RUNWAY.>>TAKEOFF, WE’RE OFF.>>Reporter: FLYING FOR MILES AND MILES. UNTIL — WE JUST ASKED THE NO-FLY ZONE. OUR PILOTS AREN’T TALKING TO AIR TRAFFIC CONTROL, IGNOING THEIR CALLS TO REACH THEM. THAT TRIGGERS AN ALARM AT THE AIR NATIONAL GUARD BASE. THESE FIGHTER PILOTS SCRAMBLING TO THEIR JETS. THEY’RE ON ALERT AND READY TO TAKE ACTION 24 HOURS A DAY. TODAY, RACING TO THEIR F-16s. SUITING UP, CLIMBING ONBOARD AND RUSHING TO THE RUNWAY. TAKING OFF TO INTERCEPT OUR ROGUE CESSNA. REACHING THE TARGET IN JUST MINUTES. THIS IS THE VIEW FROM THE F-16. THAT’S MY CESSNA RIGHT THERE. WHOA. YOU CAN ACTUALLY HEAR — I DON’T KNOW IF YOU CAN HEAR IT ON CAMERA, YOU CAN HEAR THAT FIGHTER JET COMING BY. THERE’S NO WAY YOU TONIGHT HEAR THIS OR NOTICE IT. COMING UP ON THE LEFT SIDE OF OUR PLANE. THAT’S AS INTIMIDATING AS YOU THINK IT WOULD BE. THAT’S THE FIGHTER JET ON OUR WING. ANOTHER FIGHTER JET SWOOPING IN ON THE RIGHT. YOU HAVE BEEN INTERCEPTED. IF YOU HEAR THIS CALL, IDENTIFY YOURSELF.>>Reporter: WE’RE A ROGUE AIRCRAFT. WE’RE NOT GOING TO RESPOND AT ALL AND SEE WHAT THE FIGHTER JET DOES. THE FIGHTER RIGHT ON OUR WING. SCANNING US INSIDE. WHAT’S HE TRYING TO DO?>>TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHO WE ARE, WHAT’S INSIDE AND WHAT WE’RE UP TO.>>Reporter: AND MAKE RADIO CONTACT AND TELL US TO DO WHAT? FOLLOW HIM?>>THAT’S CORRECT.>>Reporter: THE FIEGERS WANT TO ESCORT US OUT OF THE AREA. THE F-16 MAKES A BOLD MOVE. SWOOPING IN RIGHT THERE. HE’S CROSSING RIGHT IN FRONT OF US. THE F-16 CROSSES RIGHT IN FRONT, JUST FEET FROM US. HARD TO MISS AND THAT’S THE POINT. THAT’S AN AGGRESSIVE MANEUVER.>>HE’S TRYING TO GET OUR ATTENTION.>>Reporter: THIS IS RESTRICTED AIR SPACE RIGHT ABOVE THE PRESIDENT’S VACATION HOME.>>ARE YOU ORDERED TO TURN TO THE NORTHWEST.>>Reporter: THE FIGHTER JET GIVING US ONE LAST MORNING, TURNING AWAY, HOPING WE FOLLOW. IF AFTER ALL OF THIS, THE PLANE WON’T LEAVE THE AIR SPACE, WILL YOU SHOOT THEM DOWN?>>IF REQUIRED, WE’LL EXKATE THE RULES OF ENGAGEMENT. AND, YES, WE WOULD DO THAT.>>Reporter: SHOOT THE PLANE DOWN.>>IF IT MEETS THE RULES OF ENGAGEMENT, YES, WE WOULD, TO PROTECT AIR SPACE.>>Reporter: WITH THE PRESIDENT TRAVELING SO MUCH, IT GETS EXPENSIVE. A GOVERNMENT WATCHDOG GROUP TELLING US THEY’RE GOING TO RELEASE NEW NUMBERS THIS WEEK. THE AIR NATIONAL GUARD DOESN’T JUST DO THIS TO PROTECT THE PRESIDENT. THE SAME RULES APPLY TO BIG EVENTS. SINCE 9/11, THEY HAVE SCRAMBLED FIGHTER JETS TO 5,000 POSSIBLE THREATS. THIS HAPPENS MORE OFTEN THAN WE

  6. Burr Anderson says:

    When Obama was in Seattle a seaplane trying to land in Bothell at the northern end of Lake Washington inadvertently crossed into restricted airspace. Jets from an airbase near Portland Oregon were dispatched and were traveling at supersonic speed to contact said intruder. Anyone care for three sonic booms?

  14. Kim Jong un says:

    I was planning on nuking Air Force 1 but after this I thought again

  15. Tom Hewitt says:

    Why is this an Air National Guard responsibility? They are a state run organization. Shouldn't it be the Air Force Reserve, which is a federal organization? They share the same airbases..

  16. Michael Brosche says:

  30. Eli Palacios says:

  32. De G says:

    American sheeps….. Stupid morons

  33. Craig Dowden says:

    It would be interesting to see how the jet would deal with the Cezzna flying an evasive path low and slow. Straight to guns I expect…..

  34. pauline palmer says:

    Why are they doing this for the enemies to know?

  35. Larry W says:

    It's a CES-NA…not a ZES-NA…sheesh

  36. Leanne Magpies Evans says:

    Ummmmmmm Please explain what a Cezna is?? I have no idea 🤷‍♀️
    I know what a CESNA is ….But a CEZNA???? 🤷‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤣

  37. Jake Malone says:

    Why do people say Cessna-Cezzna, Tesla-Tezla, Muslim-Muzlim, etc?

  38. Who Cares says:

    The F-16 wasn't turning left to get you to follow it it rolled left to show it was armed and would use force..

  41. Da Do says:

    Wow amazing!

  42. Elgus 114 says:

    Who's gonna pay for all the spent fuel in this charade …….?

  43. So Confused says:

    So strange that the life of one person presents an insurmountable critical weakness to the lives of hundreds of millions, to the degree that said person needs their own airspace. Such a society is flawed beyond reason

  44. Lawrence McGee says:

    F16 from ac ng 177 nj Jersey devils

  45. Critical Thinker says:

    POTUS should have a fix number of vacation days per year!

  46. Sun Shine says:

    My name is Mr Sun Shine, I live in Oceanside California USA, and I’m happily married with a lovely wife and three children. I had a very big problem with my wife few months ago, to the extent that she even packed her things away from me and my kids for almost 5 months,and i tried all my possible best and effort to bring her back, but all to no avail. I discussed it with a very good friend of mine, and he gave me an advice concerning a spell caster, and i quote.“There’s someone who can handle your situation, he’s always ready and able to do anything related to spell casting, i will like you to contact him. I never believed in spell casting, but he convinced me and i had no choice than to follow his advice, because i never dreamt of loosing my lovely wife And that’s how i contacted him with his email address, and i discussed with him and so surprisingly, he told me that I’ll get my wife back a day after. so i never believed, until when i got home, the next day,my wife called me to inform me that she was coming back…..So amazing!! That’s how i got my wife back through spell casting and our relationship was now stronger than how it was before. One of the price i was asked to pay was to tell it to people around me that problems like this, can always be solved by “Dr. Oboh Akhere Great Oracle Temple Solution”. So! my advice for you out there is to contact him now, and tell him your problems too, if you are in any condition related to love issue or getting your ex back, to have a happy family. THANKS…. HIS EMAIL ADDRESS IS: [email protected] YOU CAN CALL OR WHATSAPP HIM ON: +2348144853157 AS HIS POWERS ARE SO STRONG AND VERY EFFECTIVE AND HAS NO BAD EFFECT INSTEAD IT HAVE A VERY GOOD RESULT AFTER CASTING THE SPELL.

  47. Soham Makwana says:

    Fire dem missiles

  48. quonsar says:

    I'd rather see Trump crash and burn. So why were all these valiant defenders unable to intercept a single one of 4 hijacked planes on 9/11?

  49. Ninja Ninja says:

    Hahaha being a president IN HIS GOLF COURSE!

  50. ArcadicticYT _ says:

    Crazy mofos

  51. MrMaxyield says:

    U mean like Cheney did on 9/11 right…???

  52. DALE thebelldiver says:

    A police state x 10. Well; how many have they shot down?

  53. Red Fernandez says:

    So how will you intercept russian camouflage jet fighter.???

  54. VTEC313 says:

    Yet they somehow couldn't scramble the jets to protect the airspace around the pentagon on 911? ….Okay.

  55. DJGahann says:

    flies drone into flightpath of Airforce One

  56. Mr Hawkhawk says:

    Racist jerk. Trump Russian spy

  57. Billy Mac says:

    This might have been an interesting or cool story had you left the BS politics out of it. Its not just Trump, its every president they do this for. It’s part of their job, including to scramble for any aircraft threat, no fly zone or not. But no, no bias there right🙄

  58. RV PJ says:

    Escorts will rock there jet vertically to intimidate the threat by showing off the weaponry underneath the wings.

  59. J Lewis says:

  62. Walt Baby says:

    $50 million dollar tax payer demo.

  63. I'm too stupid to pour piss out of a boot says:

    Interesting how those fighters reached them within minutes but it took fighters on 911 well over a hour and that's a good hour after they knew there were hijacked planes

  64. Marlou jigger says:

    Here comes the missile *KAPOOSHH!!!! *

    Buy GTA 5 for $55.99 nation wide

  65. Blunt Machete says:

  69. Sorin Tiplea says:

  77. Sharky Fish says:

    RAKE THE SKIES !!!

  78. Kamrul Hassan says:

    Whow ! The F-16 was so close at the front that it was lucky not getting chopped by the propallor blades. Very scary and dramatic !

  79. satnam singh says:

    With f16 they can do this much only

  80. Terry Saunders says:

    At least they’re up their game since911

  81. AGENT007 LICENSE to SHILL says:

    -⛔ No Fly Zone AHead ⛔

  82. David Buschhorn says:

    The fighter isn't just "turning away and hoping we'll follow." What he's doing is showing the Cessna pilot that's he's loaded with rockets to blow him out of the sky if he doesn't comply.

  83. 90s Kid says:

    I got the newest definition for the measurement of ‘Feet’.

  84. Black Phantom says:

    I thought i would see a cessna fly at mach 1

  85. dzr dzr says:

  91. Diamond says:

  92. HUQUE says:

    "Close to us". Yeah just like when Russian Airforce unarmed Bears planes fly 300 miles off the coast and the media says that nuclear missiles carrying russian military aircraft zipped past next to seattle….

  93. Miles C. Anthony says:

    A few feet. So. You're not just melodramatic and skittish, you're blind as well.

  94. Trw Wn says:

  95. Dave Carsley says:

  96. Proud Deplorable says:

    911 was an inside job.

  97. Zeus Achilis says:

    Not appreciated, you just blow the security of US president..

  98. Alejandro Iduñate says:

    Stupid tv shows for stupid people.

  99. Carama Gambino says:

    Yes. Are you deaf? This is exactly what happens when you invade the presidents airspace
