Unidentified men wanted to ram an airplane into the Capitol building

U.S. air traffic controllers intercepted an audio recording in which unidentified men threatened to fly a plane into the Capitol building on Wednesday, January 6.

So far, it has not been possible to determine who might have sent the audio recording. It is noted that the authorities did not consider the threat real, but nevertheless launched an investigation into the infiltration of aircraft frequencies. And it has caused serious concern among specialists, because it could affect the instructions received from the controllers by pilots.
