Ever since 9/11 all aircraft, commercial and private, have had to follow strict flight plans when approaching my city, Washington, DC. Jets, small propeller planes, helicopters, etc. have all had to fly over the Potomac river and turn at a sharp angle when they approach National Airport for landing, so they can avoid getting anywhere near the No-Fly Zone (NFZ) that has been declared around the memorials, White House, Capitol, and the various government agencies.
Although it hasn't been widely reported, a small craft violated the NFZ rules last night by entering the forbidden air space. The Department of Homeland Security had the situation covered, though, and their fighter jets scrambled to the scene before this unidentified aircraft, which was headed directly for the White House, could reach its target.
The fighter jets shot the rogue craft out of the sky and witnesses claim that the power of their weapons was so devastating that not much debris remained, which has the wheels turning in conspiracy theorists' brains already.
One witness, however, who had seen the entire chain of events unfold, did actually find a piece of the charred red fusilage. When asked what kind of aircraft it was that was shot down, the witness described it as being built in the form of a red, old-fashioned, open carriage or sleigh, and also said that it appeared to have been pulled by nine large woodland mammals of some sort, the one in front having a bright red light attached to its face, possibly for navigation purposes. Unfortunately, all witnesses have been spirited away to an undisclosed location, so we may never know what really happened last night over the National Mall, just a few hundred yards from the White House.
'Twas the night before Christmas
and in the capital of the U.S. of A.
not an aircraft approached the NFZ
except for a big, toy-filled sleigh
The fighter jets were summoned
and scrambled to the center of town
til they reached the offending target
and shot Santa down . . .
