Well, mystery solved. Who is responsible for the irresponsible fly-over? It came straight from the White House.
The White House Military Office TOLD the FAA that it updates file photo of Air Force One near national landmarks and they wanted to update its file photo of the President’s plane near the Statue of Liberty.
And I guess the FAA responds when the White House calls them, even if it is a foggy Monday morning and scares the bejesus out of workers in highrise buildings at Ground Zero.
“”An administration official says a presidential Boeing 747 and a fighter jet flew low near ground zero in New York City Monday because the White House Military Office wanted to update its file photo of the president’s plane near the Statue of Liberty.
This official said the White House Military Office told the Federal Aviation Administration that it periodically updates file photos of Air Force One near national landmarks, like the statute in New York harbor and the Grand Canyon.””
There is something wrong with this picture. It does not make any sense. Has anyone ever seen a picture of Air Force One flying over the Grand Canyon or the Statue of Liberty?
