The jets were reportedly following a private plane that had entered a no-fly zone near Somerset Airport around 12:30 p.m. Witnesses in the Somerville area reported seeing the fighter jets fire off three flares.

The Federal Aviation Administration issued a temporary flight restriction for VIP movement over the Bedminster area, as the president is staying at his golf club through the weekend.

Last month, the fighter jets intercepted two private aircrafts that flew into no-fly zones during the president's visit to the golf club.
