I saw this earlier today and could not believe this video footage. Some genius in the executive office wanted to get some photo op pictures of an Air Force 1 type plane flying above Manhattan and the Statute of Liberty. However, they and the New York City officials decided not to alert the citizens of New York City. As you can imagine, seeing a very large plane flanked by two fighter jets above the tall buildings in NYC can be quiet scary.
The video is amazing because you can hear some people in the background scared out of their mind shouting, “Oh My God”. They thought it was another terrorist attack.
Not cool. I wonder if we will ever get to see those photos.
For some reason the video link wasn’t working. check it out here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BMoy8JprKI0
