Question Status: Open

A few weeks ago I took a trip to Chattanooga, TN. On my way driving back to the airport, I noticed that there seemed to be a F-16 (or a small military plane), which struck odd because the airport (CHA) only has an Engineering Squadron (thank you Google). As my flight headed to the runway, the captain comes up and tells us air traffic control told us to hold about 30 minutes. I look outside, and a white private jet (looked similar to small regional jets), with &quote;United States Air Force&quote; on its side rolls past us, and long story short I missed my connection by exactly 1 minute, ending 6 hours behind schedule. I'm assuming it was some bigwig visiting local National Guards, or contractors nearby, or could it actually be for mobilization or other things? Is it normal to have escorts for high-ranking military general (oversea, probably so..but even inside the US?)
