 WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Same plane. Different wayward pilot.

A small Cessna aircraft that flew into Washington's restricted airspace Tuesday afternoon is the same aircraft that violated Washington airspace four years ago, prompting the partial evacuations of the White House, the Capitol and the Supreme Court, records show.

Tuesday's incident happened when the plane's pilot -- a student -- flew into Washington airspace at 2:15 p.m., according to the Federal Aviation Administration and North American Aerospace Defense Command.

The plane got within 10 miles of Reagan National Airport before it was intercepted by two U.S. Coast Guard helicopters and instructed to land at an airport in Gaithersburg, Maryland. It landed without incident at 2:45 p.m.

If it was a student, most likely it is a rental aircraft.  I doubt it is the same guy from '05.

It's funny how some comms go missing after incidents like this.
