An F-16 fighter  was scrambled to intercept a private plane after it entered airspace that was restricted for President Barack Obama on Wednesday evening.

The single-engine Cessna  was  forced to land shortly before 5 p.m. Wednesday, according to a NORAD statement.

The plane was intercepted without incident at an airfield in Camarillo, California Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregor said.

FAA officials would interview the pilot, whose name was not released, Gregor said.

There have been similar incidents when Obama visited Los Angeles in the past, none of them deemed to be a direct threat to the President.
