“Two F-15 fighters were scrambled from Portland International Airport on Saturday evening. Shortly after their flight departed, the FAA issued a temporary flight restriction centered over Havre, MT to support an air defense mission. This follows a similar pattern to the earlier shoot down today in Canada, and the previous shoot down in Alaska and before that South Carolina.”
