Officials say two F-16 military jets have escorted a small plane away from a no-fly zone above where President Barack Obama is vacationing along Florida's Treasure Coast.

U.S. Army Lt. Col. Mike Humphreys said the planes forced the Cessna 152 to land in Witham Field in Stuart around noon Saturday. Local authorities met the plane when it landed. No other details were released.

Federal Aviation Administration officials said they are investigating whether the Cessna entered the temporarily restricted flight area.

Obama is spending the weekend with some friends at the Floridian, a secluded yacht and golf club.
