The incident unfolded early in the morning when two activists, Jennifer Kowalski and Cole Macdonald, breached security and accessed the VIP section of the airfield. Armed with cans of orange paint, they defaced multiple private jets, including one believed to be associated with Swift, although reports later clarified her plane wasn’t present during the vandalism.
