Authorities say two F-16 fighter jets escorted a small airplane out of restricted airspace in Washington, an apparently inadvertent intrusion that prompted evacuations at the U.S. Capitol and surrounding buildings.
A pair of F-16 Falcon jets belonging to the D.C. Air National Guard clipped wings in mid-air off the coast of Virginia's Eastern Shore late Thursday night, forcing one of the pilots to eject and be rescued at sea.
