KYW Newsradio received a number of tip calls and photos that show what appears to be a jetliner flanked by two aircraft over each wing.
Saw it over Oaks Pa. Could not tell if commercial or Air Force One?

The North American Air Defense Command typically would scramble fighter jets to intercept or escort a potential threat. But a NORAD spokesman says they were not involved.
There was no immediate comment from Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst.
