Small Plane Chased Down In D.C.

U.S. military fighter jets were sent to chase down a small plane that was flying over Washington D.C. and was unresponsive to radio calls.  The jets caused a sonic boom that was heard in the Virginia and D.C. areas.  The plane eventually crashed in Virginia with no survivors. North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) sent two F-16 fighter jets to respond to the unresponsive Cessna 560 Citation V plane that was flying over Washington, D.C. and Virginia. According to officials, the plane had been following a strange flight path and did not respond when contacted. The plane departed Tennessee and was headed towards Long Island but turned around and flew straight over D.C., before descending rapidly and crashing.
