Feds Harassing ABP?
ABC Affiliate Reports on F-16 Incident

Glenn Spencer's comment: Immediately following this near mid-air collision I reported the incident to approach control at Ft. Huachuca. I told them it was an inexcusable act by the F-16s. In a later phone conversation, the controller said he had radioed the F-16 pilots and told them he knew who we were. Despite this we were still pursued. I can only conclude that someone doesn't like us.

Civilian border watcher claims he was harassed by F-16 fighter jets
    El Paso -- A pilot working for a civilian illegal immigration watchdog group claims he was recently harassed by a pair of Air Force F-16 fighter jets.
    Glenn Spencer said he flew from Fabens to San Diego last month to record the progress that has been made on the border fence when he was confronted by the two fighter jets.
    "I thought it was some kind of military maneuver," said Spencer. The dangerous incident happened while he was flying over Douglas, Arizona in his Cessna 206. "[The jet] was less than a 100 feet away, made a sharp bank and then hit its afterburners. I thought I was in a mid-air collision."
