An F-16 fighter jet intercepted a small private plane after it entered airspace that was restricted for President Barack Obama’s fundraising visit on Wednesday night.

The single-engine Cessna 117 was intercepted and forced to land shortly before 5 p.m. Wednesday, according to a statement from the North American Aerospace Defense Command.

The plane was intercepted northwest of Los Angeles and landed without incident at an airfield in Camarillo, Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregor said.
