Does Norad Really Escort Santa?

Ask CrashHowdy!

Elf Crash Murphy received another flight question today, this one about military jet escorts on Christmas Eve.

This is a really good question and I’m glad that Craig in the UK asked it. We get this question quite a bit for some reason.

Santa’s flight on Christmas Eve actually gets seen by a lot of people. We document those Santa sightings right here on Christmas Eve every year as part of our coverage of Santa’s flight.

But it is true that a lot of different aircraft try to be in the skies at the same time every Christmas when Santa is. That is kind of dangerous and one of the many reasons Santa has his own Santa trackers. There just cannot be enough eyes looking out for Santa’s safety on Christmas Eve.

We hope as you listen to these questions and answers from Crash that you consider joining the Santa effort and think of becoming an elf. Santa can always use more elves.
