NORAD just tweeted this.

More context:

This comes 1 minute after that NORAD tweet, which is still up.

You have to give the @IDF a lot of credit for how they use Twitter. No timely details have followed from NORAD. Governments are largely still ineffective at using real-time communication platforms.

It is worth remembering how vulnerable DC airspace is, even after the larger ADIZ was established post-911. A Florida Man quite literally flew under the radar and landed on the White House lawn in 2015, and that never activated the missile defense system 🙃 https://www.washingtonpost.com/local/florida-mailman-lands-a-gyrocopter-on-capitol-lawn-hoping-to-a-send-message/2015/04/15/3be11140-e39a-11e4-b510-962fcfabc310_story.html 

On the bright side, it's not a drone swarm

Did DC just get locked down by another Gatwick phantom? 👀
