Responding to dozens of requests from the public, the Defense Department has released 146 more photos from the infamous Air Force One flyover that struck fear in thousands of unsuspecting New Yorkers in April.
The photos are posted right on the Pentagon's Website, defense officials said today. The Pentagon also released a heavily redacted flight manifest.
The April 27 photo-op caused quite a fright in Lower Manhattan and New Jersey, as many people who had lived through the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks thought the city was again under siege. Workers poured out of office buildings as the planes buzzed the city near the Financial District.
Local officials in New York and New Jersey had not been informed of the photo-op, which cost some $328,000, and the lack of communication and needless worry caused by the incident led to the resignation of Louis Caldera, the Obama official behind the stunt

What, he released a copy of his BC?
Transparency you can believe in!
More info. Where’s the flight manifest?
We have adolescents with a chip on their shoulders in charge.
Who cares about the pictures... I want to know who all went joyriding on that flight.
Just as I suspected. I could have done that with Photoshop.
Why would the manifest be redacted? Was Obama selling seats on the plane?
And on top of that who ordered it.
You take a plane up for photos and need only the operations crew.
What? There were political donors aboard?
Imagine the outrage if Bush had done this. The MSM would still be talking about it today.
Obammy gets a pass on everything.
I want to know who was on that plane.
If Dan Quayle had done something like this, they would have hung him from a rope. Hardly a word about Obama okaying the deed.
This looks almost as if it was done to tweak folks who were so terrorized on 09/11. Could any Muslim activist desiring to cause concern in New York have done anything more inappropriate, without actually committing a crime? No.
This was disgusting to the max.
why was the manifest redacted?
That’s what I want to know. All they do is lie and cheat. I really despise these people.
Under SIEGE? Under ATTACK!
The flight manifest only shows USAF personnel.
From the pictures, and from recollection, it was a crappy day, hazy and not clear at all.
You would have to photoshop these pictures to make them look decent. Run throught the photos and you will see the horrible colors as they buzz around the Statue of Liberty, NJ and lower Manhattan, and the haziness.
The 146 photos are stock stuff that certainly already exists.
I also thought there was a “Redtail” chase plane. There were two fighters, F-16s, but the only one in the pictures does not have a red tail. The Redtail must have been the photo plane, then.
A joyride on a crappy, hazy day, to take mediocre photos of AF-1 that already exist in better colors and wasting $ 328,000, adding to the degradation of the precious greenhouse, adding pollution to the air and wasting precious fuel(/sarc)?
Someone is still pulling our leg.
What a collage of stink we already have from Obama and it hasn’t even been a year yet.
Who knows. Barack “transparent government” Obama is the king of opaque.
The redacted manifest makes no sense to me . Looked at it and do not understand the reason to make the redactions.
The only thing that seems redacted are the people’s names and they were all air force members, probably attendents and crew.
I figured there were hundreds of donors on the plane.
