Fighter jets scrambled after plane loses contact
OAKLAND, Calif. (KABC) -- Fighter jets were scrambled over California this week, after a small plane lost contact with traffic controllers.
Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Mike Fergus says the Cessna 172 was flying from Santa Monica to Oakland on Sunday when it lost radio contact somewhere near Ventura.
The pilot didn't re-establish contact until the plane was near the Monterey area.
Fighter jets were scrambled from a base near Fresno, but the plane landed without any problems at Oakland.
