Jet Blue Escort

Has anyone heard about the two F-16's or F18's which escorted a Jet Blue aircraft into LaGuadia in New York??? It happened just before the weekend...Jet Blue don't operate from that airport for a start...I know its been kept quiet as it hasn't been on local news or in any papers...My dad lives in Queens and saw it with his own eyes so it isn't some rumour, it happpened for sure...

JetBlue has about 7 flights a day between Ft Lauderdale and La Guardia.

Flew the FLL-LGA-FLL turn last night - we definitely go to LGA! I haven't heard a word about any escorts through the company grapevine.
