Capitol evacuated over 'aircraft that posed threat' as urgent warning issued
What to know about the events at Capitol Hill

Just last week police warned of an aircraft “that posed a threat” to the US Capitol, leading to its evacuation.

The scare was slammed as a stunning communications failure after the plane was revealed to be carrying members of the US Army’s Golden Knights, who parachuted into Nationals Park for a pregame demonstration.

Congressional staffers fled the Capitol as police said they were “tracking an aircraft that poses a probable threat to the Capitol Complex.”

Capitol Police later said that the area was evacuated “out of an abundance of caution” with no threat found.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi blamed the blunder on the Federal Aviation Administration, saying its “apparent failure to notify Capitol Police of the pre-planned flyover Nationals Stadium is outrageous and inexcusable.”

The twin-engine plane took off from Joint Base Andrews in Maryland and circled inside heavily restricted airspace close to the Capitol, which led to the evacuation order.

Multiple federal agencies were said to have been scrambling as the plane was overhead.
