The Federal Aviation said 11 planes violated restricted space while President Donald Trump spent the holidays at his Mar-a-Lago resort in South Florida, the SunSentinel is reporting.

The planes included a private aircraft that had to be intercepted by two F-16 fighter jets after it entered restricted space about 29 nautical miles from Palm Beach, said Michael Kucharek, a spokesman for the North American Aerospace Defense Command.

The jets intercepted the plane at 4:24 p.m. on Sunday

The Palm Beach Post reported the pilot of the private plane was unaware of the restriction.

It was the only plane intercepted by military jets during Trump’s stay.

The Secret Service questions those found violating air restrictions during presidential visits, the Sentinel said. The FAA then decides whether pilots will face civil penalties or criminal charges.

Dozens of pilots have violated air restrictions around Ma-a-Lago since Trump became president, according to the newspaper.
