Agence France-Presse reported, that in airspace of residence Barack Obama in Camp David, at 15.25 local time, entered a small private plane Beechcraft Bonanza. At this time in Camp David were Barack Obama with his family. Since the pilot of the plane Beechcraft Bonanza did not reply to requests from ground-based monitoring stations for air space, two American F-15 forced him to land at the nearest airfield.

It should be noted, that the Beechcraft Bonanza is one of the fastest aircraft in its class and it is still in service with several countries in the world as a light attack aircraft and reconnaissance aircraft. In accordance with the tactical and technical data, Beechcraft Bonanza plane could theoretically carry 482 kilograms of explosives, so this prompt action of F-15 was completely justified.

Beechcraft Bonanza – is a legendary aircraft, the first version of the aircraft rose into the air even on Dec. 22, 1945. Since then the aircraft has undergone many changes and modifications, but is available until now. Although by 2011, production has remained a modification of the Bonanza, which is manufactured by "Hawker Beechcraft", a division of "Raytheon". Construction of Beechcraft Bonanza includes classic glider Model 36 and the engine Teledyne-Continental IO-550-B.

It is worth noting two military aircraft modification Beechcraft Bonanza - 27 aircraft QU-22B (proper designation of the company - Model PD.1079) during the Vietnam War were equipped with special electronic equipment designed to collect and transmit to ground station data from land-based acoustic sensors. Also, the company "Beech" has developed a two-seat attack aircraft modification, based on Beechcraft Bonanza - close air support aircraft, prototype of which was designated after the assessments YAU-22 A and was equipped with various kinds of weapons to be placed on underwing hardpoints (up to 535 kg).

Thus, theoretically, Beechcraft Bonanza plane is quite formidable threat, considering its speed, maneuverability and capacity. However, the aircraft of this class has very little chance to penetrate the security system around the residence of U.S. President in Camp David, which is located in the Catoctin Mountain Park (Frederick County, Maryland, USA), a few kilometers from Camp David is a bunker Site R, also known under the name of Raven Rock.

The main difference of the residence in the Camp David -is the protection of the residence along with military targets. The perimeter of the residence Camp David is surrounded by double fences, equipped with a control-exclusion zone. Protection of the residence is carried out by the Marines, at the nearest military air base is constantly on duty military jets, ready to catch any flying object, which represents at least a potential threat to the residence of Camp David. In this case, what happened, Beechcraft Bonanza plane was intercepted 18 km from the residence of Camp David. Representative of the U.S.
