July 03, 2005|by GREGORY T. SIMMONS

An airplane that had violated an area no-fly zone Saturday landed at Frederick (Md.) Municipal Airport, Maryland State Police Sgt. M. Jones in Frederick said Saturday night.

As the situation unfolded, it was not immediately clear which no-fly zone the pilot had violated, but it could have been the Camp David or Washington, D.C.-area restricted areas, a police spokesman and a local airport official said.

Matt Cissel, an employee at Rider Jet at Hagerstown Regional Airport, said a pilot that had landed about 10:30 p.m. also heard that a nearby pilot had violated flight restrictions, although no such plane had landed in Hagerstown.
