Fighter jet in Hackettstown?

Does anyone have an idea of what it was for??

I saw two yesterday flying at about 4000 feet. I assume they were escorting the Russian surveillance plane that was flying over the east coast. Maybe more of that today.. Also if a plane gets to close to Bedminster these days they would probably scramble some jets.


Trump's in Bedminster. Maybe there was a no-fly-zone violation at the local airport that needed to be checked out? Just a guess...


They've been out a lot since Trump is in Bedminster. No Fly Zone for wide area and if someone violates the restricted airspace the jets get called in

There is going to be a scheduled Russian spy plane flying over Bedminster later today.

"A second flight by the same jet is planned for between 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. Wednesday, when the Russian jet will overfly Bedminster, New Jersey, where President Donald Trump is vacationing, according to two people familiar with the US government-approved flight."

The F-16s of the 177th FW out of Atlantic City has been pretty busy up here lately. For some reason they are providing air cover for a golf course.

Oops, that Russian flight was yesterday I guess. Hectic week at work, can't keep track of what day it is anymore.

Saw two military helicopters, a few days ago. It was so loud, the house literally shook!

I hope the dunderheads who fly in the no-fly zone are being sent bills to repay the taxpayers for the cost of scrambling fighter jets to escort them out of the restricted air space.

Also, they should lose their pilot's license, at least for a time. If you can't figure out where a no-fly zone is, you're probably not smart enough to operate aircraft.
