FAA designates skies over Nashville as 'National Defense Airspace' in wake of bombing

Source: Fox 17/WZTV

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WZTV) The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has classified airspace over Nashville as "National Defense Airspace" following the Christmas morning bombing in downtown Nashville.

The alert to pilots states "pilots who do not adhere to the following procedures may be intercepted, detained, and interviewed by law enforcement/security personnel."

In addition to penalties for pilots who break the protocol, there could be much more dire consequences. The alert states "The United States government may use deadly force against the airborne aircraft, if it is determined that the aircraft poses an imminent security threat."

The alert comes as Nashville Mayor John Cooper issued a State of Civil Emergency for the affected bomb blast area and a curfew through December 27. The FAA alert is in effect through Wednesday.

3. Maybe to keep people or organizations from flying drones over the area?

5. Typical Fox Reporting

Everyone keep your pants on. The FAA did no such thing. The area over the bombing area and for a radius of about 2 miles is a temporary flight restriction from the ground up to about 2000' above the ground. Same status as temporarily restricted airspace over a forest fire or a "VIP Movement". Normal operating procedure to keep drones out and sightseeing aircraft. Will probably be lifted in a few days.

I know it's TMI, but I haven't had my pants on since March.

8. Many of us have learned just how unnecessary pants are these days.

Pants were always a ploy by clothing corporations to get more revenue.

9. Perhaps, when the history books are written of this era, it will not be...

known as the Global Coronavirus Pandemic, but as "The Great Pantsing".
