Obama plane security scare

A passenger aboard a sea plane that intruded into airspace around Air Force One while President Barack Obama (left) was in town said she was stunned to find out about the fuss that resulted.

The US military scrambled fighter jets and the sonic booms startled many in the Puget Sound, Washington State area.

The Cessna 180 float plane was flying to a base near Seattle.

Neither passenger Laura Joseph nor pilot Lee Daily knew about Mr Obama's visit or the air restrictions around such a trip.
