FAA says low-flying plane over Staten Island is ‘pre-planned’ flight to take photos
by Staten Island Advance
Monday April 27, 2009, 10:03 AM

A plane, that appears to be a commercial jet tailed by fighter jets, is a “pre-planned” military flight taking photos of the Statue of Liberty, according to the Federal Aviation Administration.

Reports indicate it may be Air Force One.

“It is pre-planned, pre-coordinated with everyone involved,” said FAA spokesman Jim Peters. “It’s a military flight over New York to take photos.”

Peters, who stressed it is not an emergency, said the flight is circling the Statue of Liberty and New York City to take photos.

Peters said city officials as well as state government agencies in New York and New Jersey were briefed on the flight in advance.

Relax. They're just shooting the footage they need for the false catastrophe news that will usher in martial law.

I wonder how many heart attacks were caused by this little stunt.

Why do they need to use Air Force One to take photos? Wouldn’t a helicopter do? Or was Obama aboard taking a joy ride at several thousand dollars an hour?

This seems really odd right now, especially with everything going on in Mexico, and the confirmed cases of this swine flu concentration in New York. What is going on?

Maybe they should have painted “Swine Flu Aerosol Dispersal Unit” on the side of the plane and just went fully crazy on the no common sense theme?

Just got a call from my husband - they just got the all clear to return to the building. Apparently no one alerted building security that this test was going to take place. Talk about incompetent.

Its amazing. If someone had said five minutes before this happened it was a possibility-whatever it turns out to be-they would have been laughed off here.
On another thread today someone incorrectly had Tom Clancy dead. He may as well be, truth has become stranger than fiction.
