WARREN, NJ — President Donald Trump will be in Bedminster for the next few weeks and air space over the area has been silent since he arrived, until early Sunday afternoon, Aug. 6, when the quiet was shattered by the sound of fighter jets.
Contrary to articles being shared on social media, that are from 2012, the jets had nothing to do with the U.N. General Assembly — it convenes in September.
Eyewitnesses saw a jet fly up from a lower altitude in the path of a small Cessna on Sunday. The jet circled the Cessna, and did it again. The plane made a hard left and flew south.
Temporary flight restrictions (TFR) are in effect from Aug. 4-17.
North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) published on Aug. 4, "PILOTS! There is a #TFR established for Bedminster, NJ, starting today. Be sure to check for potential Federal Aviation Administration #NOTAMS in your flight path before taking off!

When aircrafts get too close and don't respond, the fighter jets show up.
And by the way: The 72 regular session of the U.N. General Assembly will convene at U.N. Headquarters in New York City on Tuesday, Sept. 12. The General Debate will open on Tuesday, Sept. 19.
