Do we scramble fighters when the airspace is touched?

Yes, but not as fast as a market order

Interesting story

It is actually pretty tight around there.

by seanferd In reply to I wonder

It's more like a giant restricted area with corridors in it. A bit different for non-fixed-wing aircraft, though.

I personally cannot tell from the (sometimes weirdly inaccurate) airspace maps if that is in restricted space or not.

Pilots?

Well in answer to your question

by HAL 9000 Moderator In reply to I wonder

It's really simple really your answer is Yes we do but it all depends where the Intrusion is coming from.

Due to Budget Constraints if it's an Intrusion from Space we don't do anything as by the time that we could get aircraft airborne whatever is coming has already got here so it's pointless rushing people around who are only going to die before they get where we want them..

Those Bloody Vulcan's are truly scary.
