The U.S. Air Force on Wednesday intercepted an "unknown aircraft" flying over Trump's campaign rally in Arizona, according to NORAD officials.

The aircraft appeared on radar over the Bullhead City rally at about 2 p.m. with no proper clearance, NORAD reports. When the pilot didn't respond to calls over the radio, F-16 fighters were dispatched to the area. After firing flares to catch the wayward pilot's attention, the jets escorted the plane out of the no-fly zone, according to NORAD.

Both Trump and his supporters appeared oblivious to the drama unfolding overhead.
