A single-engine airplane violated restricted airspace and got to within 6 miles of the Capitol before being diverted, the Federal Aviation Administration said. The violation prompted security officials to temporarily raise the threat level from yellow to orange and order personnel in the Capitol building to prepare to evacuate, but the incident was resolved before an evacuation was ordered. The propeller-driven Cessna 177 was escorted by two F-16s to a Leesburg, Va., airport where it landed, FAA spokesman Hank Price said.
