WASHINGTON (WUSA) -- Two F-16 fighter jets flew over to check on an airplane that lost radio contact, government officials said. 
It happened "in the vicinity of the National Capital Region at approximately 1215 EST today," NORAD said Wednesday afternoon. 
The "general aviation aircraft" had lost radio contact long enough for NORAD to send the jets to check it out. 
"The civilian aircraft re-established communications and was allowed to continue on its way without incident," officials said. Artwork available here.
