    WASHINGTON — The White House is refusing to release the controversial photos of Air Force One flying over the Manhattan skyline last week that triggered panic among New Yorkers and an internal review in the Obama administration. White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said Tuesday that there was no need to release them. "I've watched CNN," he said, noting the considerable coverage from amateur footage. "I didn't notice a lack of archival material from that flight." He added that he didn't know where to locate the photos taken from inside the plane.

    May 15, 2003- A jumbo jet - larger than either of the planes that exploded into the twin towers - flew low along the Hudson River and buzzed the Statue of Liberty yesterday before veering toward the heart of midtown. ...The plane was carrying U.S. troops on their way home from Iraq. But almost no one watching from below knew that - and the jittery city braced for the worst. Mayor Bloomberg got only a two-minute heads-up from the Federal Aviation Administration that they had given the pilot special permission for the unusual flyby. "Considering the world we live in...

    We asked readers to dream up doctored landscapes for the President's Air Force One – and wow, did they ever deliver! On Monday, the Presidential jet and an F-16 fighter plane buzzed over lower Manhattan for a photo-op of the First Plane with New York City landmarks. The stunt sparked fears of terror attacks and cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. We suggested the White House staffers could've gotten better results – for a lot less money – from the comforts of their own D.C. offices using a program like Photoshop. And YOU proved us right.

    An Air Force officer who served in the Clinton White House and for two years carried the "nuclear football" briefcase of codes says it's almost certain that the "highest levels" of the Obama administration knew about and approved this week's stunt in which Air Force One buzzed New York City. Retired Lt. Col. Buzz Patterson served in Clinton's White House from 1996 to 1998 and was responsible for the president's "emergency satchel," the black bag of nuclear codes that accompanies the president at all times. He wrote "Reckless Disregard" and "Dereliction of Duty" after his retirement from the military. During...

    This morning, at least one news organization and one citizen advocacy group was mulling filing a Freedom of Information Act request seeking the release of the manifest for the Air Force One New York flyover to determine if any Obama donors or other interested parties were on board the flight. *** The White House is already on record as saying that only Air Force personnel were on Air Force One. Yesterday, White House spokesman Robert Gibbs told reporters: "I'm told that -- keep in mind this was a -- this was two training missions that, in the end, became a...

    So just in case you haven’t heard by now, yesterday, one of the planes that serves the President did a little flyover of Manhattan and the Hudson River, including Ellis Island. This plane is a Boeing 747 and from the ground looks like any other large commercial airplane. All of that might be OK except that this plane is flying at just over a few hundred FEET!

    On Monday, April 27, 2009, a VC-25, a military version of a Boeing 747 and one of the planes which serves as Air Force One, as well as two F-16 fighter jets, flew low over the New York harbor, passing by the Statue of Liberty and the financial district near the World Trade Center. Obama appears to be claiming that he did not give the order for this flight and is acting as if he found out about this incident right along with the rest of us. REALLY? You would think that before this flight was initiated, there would have...

    JOM (Just One Minute) poster Mustang has a plausible theory on the fly-by over Manhattan yesterday: that it was to aid in the production of a film Red Tail about the Tuskegee Airman called Red Tail. Tom Maguire details it: This is an interesting theory about yesterdays fly-by of Manhattan - they were putting together some footage which would be useful to George Lucas' upcoming film about the Tuskegee Airmen of WWII, known as the Red Tails. Well - this will never be admitted. And the red-tailed photo of the trailing fighter may just be a trick of the light....

    We know who has taken the fall, Louis Caldera, the Director of the White House Military Office. But lots of questions remain. And in today’s political climate, “taking the fall” means being the one who says he’s sorry. The days of falling on one’s sword, even metaphorically, are long gone for Democrats. Who wanted new pictures of Air Force One against the New York skyline? Why was there a demand for secrecy? And, of course, the big question: who thought that low flying jumbo jets over Manhattan would pass un-noticed by the people who watched their friends die just eight...
