I am not a pilot, but I play one on tv. Seriously, a flight like this required LOTS of preplanning and LOTS of people involved. You cannot take a cessna up without lots of paperwork and such. What really bugs me is the fact that this was done. Who in the world wouldn’t know that this would absolutely freak the New Yorkers out. This admin is a combination of incompetence and out right evil. It’s just hard to tell when either is at play.
Also, do not count on the media getting to the bottom of this issue. obambi will make a pronouncement and it will be so. Same ol Same ol.

Look at the angle of bank on that 747, its at least 45 degrees, being flown more like a Fighter than a Transport

Very good point! The only time we've seen that before was in the Harrison Ford film.

So was this for a film or (as you say) a thrill ride?

People, PLEASE. What's more important? Sane day-to-day actions and a healthy in tact psyche for millions of New Yorkers, or elaborate photo ops and constant 2012 campaign prep?

Furious Obama Apologizes: "It Will Never Happen Again"

Bull! Now they have "new" photographs that "prove" Obomas friends weren't responsible for 9/11 - Bush blew up the towers!

They have a plane, NY buildings, and a panicked population.

Brace yourselves. These "Newly released 9/11 pictures" will be hitting the Internet soon.

The Friends, during their obligatory 100 Days Celebration (yipee!), are still covering this story and playing the 911 calls all morning.

But they demanded total secrecy from the NYPD, the Secret Service, the FBI and even the mayor's office and threatened federal sanctions if the secret got out.

BLOOMBERG KNEW! Fake outrage from the Mayor yesterday, claiming he wasn't informed.

Remember "Turk 182", anyone? Let's just paraphrase:

"OBAMA FLEW, AND BLOOMBERG KNEW!"

This was a test. 0bama wanted to see if it would get any reaction and would use that in saying the country is safe now that he is in charge. NOT!

I have a hard time believing that with the current pair of VC-25’S, having been in service since 1990, they have never taken the opportunity of shooting them over lower Manhattan and S.O.L. before now.

I talked to my brother who is a pilot and has quite a few opinions concerning the FAA none of them very good.
He told me he believes that it never would have occurred to the FAA to tell local authorities to keep the flyover a secret .That they are so absorbed in there own self importance that worrying about the little people is not something their minds are capable of.

We'd all be reminded how insensitive and stupid our CIC was if this happened with Bush in the White House.
