75-year-old pilot explains encounter with F-16s

Associated Press

Myrtle Rose was just taking a short flight over suburban Chicago when the 75-year-old aviation enthusiast looked out her cockpit window to see two F-16 fighter jets. She assumed the military pilots were just slowing down to get a closer look at her antique plane.

It wasn’t until she got on the ground that friends and the police told her the attention was much more serious — for straying into restricted airspace during a visit by President Barack Obama.

With her husband, Mrs. Rose was responsible for supplying Canadian bacon to McDonald’s. Let’s hope someone doesn’t have to pull her bacon from the fire.
