A plane flying out of Barrington was intercepted by two F-16 fighter jets early Wednesday night after the plane entered restricted airspace, which was temporarily put in place for President Obama's visit to Chicago.
The jets were scrambled by the North American Aerospace Defense Command at 5:34 p.m. after a Kitfox Model 2 flew into temporarily restricted airspace, said NORAD spokesman Lt. Michael Humphreys.
NORAD officials said the plane did not have a radio, forcing the command to scramble the jets in order to identify it.
The jets intercepted the plane, forcing it to turn around and return to its home airport of Mill Rose Farm in Barrington, Humphreys said.
The president was in town Wednesday night for his 50th birthday party at the Aragon Ballroom, which seconded as a fundraising effort for his re-election campaign.

He had all that money he didn't need a few weeks ago, now he's partying and raising money on the taxpayers dime!
Not to mention how terrified the POTUS must be of an 850lb (at gross) 85MPH terror machine. Why he probably could have burned up a shrub or dented someone's Prius with that thing. A TFR for a birthday party and 2 fighter jets to neutralize kitfox.... It'd be funny if it weren't true.
