So a Cardinal flies too close to the Capitol and they had to shoo it away.

The article saidNORAD also used a laser system that visually warns pilots they are in a restricted area, Kucharek said. The pilot turned west and landed at an airport in suburban Leesburg, Va., while under escort from the fighter jets.Laser :confused: What do they do? shine it in yor eyes ... all the way from Colorado?
