Sonic Boom Over DC As NORAD Scrambles F-16s To Intercept “Unresponsive” Private Jet That Crashed

On Sunday afternoon, NORAD scrambled two F-16 fighter jets to intercept an unresponsive private jet that breached highly restricted airspace in Washington, DC. The private jet crashed shortly afterward in mountainous terrain in Northern Virginia.

“In coordination with the Federal Aviation Administration, NORAD F-16 fighter aircraft responded to an unresponsive Cessna 560 Citation V aircraft over Washington, D.C., and northern Virginia on June 4, 2023,” a statement from NORAD’s Continental U.S. Region said.

NORAD’s fighter jets “were authorized to travel at supersonic speeds and a sonic boom may have been heard by residents of the region,” according to the statement. Residents across the region were startled by the loud noises.

“During this event, the NORAD aircraft also used flares — which may have been visible to the public — in an attempt to draw attention from the pilot,” NORAD said.

“The pilot was unresponsive and the Cessna subsequently crashed near the George Washington National Forest, Virginia,” it added.

ABC News reported four people were aboard the private jet that had initially taken off from Elizabethton, Tennessee, and was headed for Long Island MacArthur Airport in New York. However, when the private jet approached Long Island, it continued at an altitude of 34,000 and made a U-Turn towards DC. 

Axios received an emailed statement from Virginia State Police spokesperson Corinne Geller, saying, “No survivors were located” at the crash site near Montebello.

Flightradar24 spokesman Ian Petchenik told Bloomberg that the plane disappeared from its tracking system, plunging at about 20,000 feet per minute.

The question remains: What caused the private jet to crash?

      Was the next staged false flag event that they had planned. The reason the puppets all got sat phones. Guess it didn’t work out quite the way they planned. After spending all of that time and money rigging DC to blow like 911 their disappointment must be unimaginable.

        Not sure how much of an explosion a small Cessna plane would make…a lot for them to explain. No this was a message to the donor. 2024

      And it just happened to be a Trump mega donor. This was a message being sent to this guy by murdering his family. This is about 2024. I’m shocked by how many people can’t see it…still buying the lies. The small airport the plane flew out of is 15 minutes from my house
