LOS ANGELES (AP) — Fighter jets intercepted two aircraft that wandered into the restricted zone during President Obama's Los Angeles visit.

Air Force Master Sgt. Chuck Marsh, a spokesman for North American Aerospace Defense Command, says a small private plane and a private helicopter were spotted in the no-fly zone around 6:30 p.m. Wednesday and authorities couldn't immediately make contact with the pilots.

California Air National Guard F-15s eventually escorted the aircraft out of the restricted area.

One landed at McClellan-Palomar Airport in Carlsbad and the other at Agua Dulce Airport.

Authorities say no planes violated restrictions during the president's Thursday visits in the Los Angeles area.
