Evacuation at D.C.

Ok, so I got somethin' after all...

Timeline of White House Security Scare
"12:11 p.m.
Threat level brought down to yellow — plane turned west and was traveling away from the White House.

12:14 p.m.
All clear at the White House.

12:37 p.m.
Cessna 152 lands in Frederick, Md. "
So, like, who or what was in the Cessna? As of this moment, there's no report of why the plane flew within 3 miles of the Capitol Building. In the past when this has happened, and the security people went bug-happy, we've been told what the problem was. For instance, a governor's plane set off false alarms when it was flying in for Reagan's funeral.

But for this - nothing. Why? No story about a poor sap who fell asleep at the stick, or had his nav charts upside down, or radio got fried?

In this case, no news is suspicious news...

UPDATE (05/12/05): Ok, apparently no cause for alarm - a student pilot and his instructor took a wrong turn. After being chased by fighters and having flares fired at them, I'll bet they'll need some industrial cleaning for those cockpit chairs today...
