A Flock Of Seagulls?
That would be a cause for alarm. They only had one hit.

What a shame.  no  This sure seems to happen a lot. We must look like the biggest bunch of jumpy, frightened pussies to the rest of the world.

U-S Capitol, White House evacuated - briefly

WASHINGTON (AP) - A few moments of tension in the nation's
capital.
Police briefly ordered evacuation of the U-S Capitol and the
White House after a private plane ventured into restricted
airspace.
The all-clear came within minutes -- well before the White House
was fully evacuated. It did, however, go briefly to red alert, its
highest level. President Bush was moved from the residential area
to a safer location.
According to a federal aviation official, a private turboprop
entered restricted airspace northeast of Reagan National Airport.
Jets scrambled from Andrews Air Force Base and intercepted the
plane eight miles northeast of the Capitol. The fighters escorted
the plane to Winchester, Virginia, where it landed without
incident.

Did they know it was a turboprop when they were evacuating? Cause I doubt a turboprop will do much damage to either of those buildings.
