WATSONVILLE (CBS 5) — The President's visit to Silicon Valley turned into a wakeup call for a local pilot after he found himself in the crosshairs of a fighter jet Monday.
The pilot was flying a bi-plane out of Watsonville when he wandered into a temporary no-fly zone put in place during President Obama's visit.
Witnesses reported seeing the fighter jet circling the smaller plane over Monterey Bay.
The pilot soon returned to Watsonville where he landed without incident. It was not immediately clear if he would face any criminal charges.
