The Noble Eagle CAP is airborne 24/7 right now; a buddy of mine is flying those missions presently. He's had a few interesting stories, and has logged around 80 hrs a month since he's been out there (a ridiculously high number for the average fighter guy in a month).

Oh, don't get me wrong. I've been shadowed a few times by a Blackhawk even when I'm doing everything right!
But for the most part, if you want an F-16 escort, you gotta do something really stupid. You gotta be like that guy who wanted to land at 2W5 (Maryland) and ended up at Andrews!
Just not talking to Potomac approach like Bush did isn't going to do it.
