1:20 p.m.: F-16s Scramble After Security Breach
Some F-16s were used Tuesday morning after a small Cessna plane violated restricted airspace near the launch pad. The pilot of the Cessna was apparently not paying attention, and the F-16s fired warning flares to get the pilot's attention. The F-16s used a push maneuver to get the plane away from the pad. The small plane landed in Lake County, and reports indicate the pilot may have tried to hide the aircraft. A viewer submitted an image of the F-16s over their Deltona home.;s=43;p=news;dm=ss;w=400
