    You'd think pilots would get the idea by now.

    Two small aircraft wandered into Camp David airspace on Saturday.  F-15 fighter jets under NORAD command scrambled and escorted the plane out of the protected space.

    President Obama is spending part of the weekend out at Camp David.

    A similar incident took place last week and the week prior, marking this the third and fourth such incidents.

    After questioning at a nearby airfield, it was determined the pilot had merely made a navigational error.
