Four small planes violated temporary flight restrictions enacted around Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara on Sunday for the Super Bowl, a Federal Aviation Administration spokesman said.

All four passed through the outer ring of the restricted area, between 10 and 32 miles away from the stadium.

They included a Beechcraft BE35, a Cessna 150 that landed in Livermore, a Van's RV-6 that landed in Paso Robles and a Cessna 172 that also landed in Livermore, FAA spokesman Ian Gregor said.

Officials with the North American Aerospace Defense Command were not immediately available to comment on whether the pilots were found and cited for violating the restrictions.

The Denver Broncos beat the Carolina Panthers 24-10 in the Super Bowl.
