What a disgustingly tacky thing for the Obama Administration to do. For A photo op?!?

I can only hope they had a VERY good secret and alternate reason for doing this.


I wonder how much money that photo op cost from fueling the plane to having the F-16 air support.

In a time when are economy sucks, they go ahead and spend money on this?

They are not setting a good example for the rest of the company.

Air Force One "lookalike"?
Both SAM28000 & SAM29000 are exactly the same, down to every bolt and polish. Either is routinely used as "Air Force One" which itself is but a call sign for any USAF aircraft carrying the POTUS.

Then why New York?


That's the backdrop - you know the statue, the iconic skyline, New York is like the 2nd city after Washington I would say.

I would of wet my self if the plane ran into a flock of geese and ditched in the Hudson

Yes, this is all very suspicious. The official story makes no sense; as others have said, the images could have been produced with CGI very easily if all they wanted were some pics of Air Force One against the NY skyline.

If this really was a USAF photo shoot then I'm lost for words. But whoever came up with the idea needs a boot up the backside!

Id say the cost would be similar to that of obamas little pizza party a few weeks ago.,Which of course we have no idea of the cost of that one either, gotta love his "transparency."

So much for the accuracy of reports that City officials were notified:

www.abcnews.go.com...



New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is "furious" over a Department of Defense low-altitude flyover of NYC in the area around Ground Zero this morning, calling it "ill-conceived" and a "waste of taxpayers' money."


This story just keeps getting stranger. Now the claim is that the "notification system," broke down. Oh ok. That all makes sense. So either they are lying or we are even more ill equipped to handle an attack then we were in 2001.

Outstanding.

Fascinating... So they initially claimed that "city officials" were made aware of this eh? Did they forget to tell the Mayor?

This thing is starting to really STINK!

I do see something at about the 30 seconds into the video. Not clear enough to tell what it is.

Right at 0:31 at the top of the video, I see what appears to be a 'Rod'. Before it vanishes to the right it seems to 'stretch'.

(Could be the lens of the camera, since it is the edge of the shot.)
--EDIT (Clarification) I mean when the object appears to 'stretch' this could be caused by the edge of the lens.

From the way it flies, it doesn't appear to be another F-16. Doesn't look like one either.

I highly agree.

I have never seen a lens malfunction/deformity that could do that to an F-16 and not affect more of the 'whole picture'.

However, if this were something less 'advanced' shape wise. A bug of some kind, a bird (sorry), heck maybe the 747 was dumping a presidental 'load'.

Or, maybe it was air force 1 (IE Prez on board), and he was meeting that UFO to do a go-over for the disclosure next month.

Speculation is irrelvant...

Good thread.

Want to point out that it was not Air Force One's back up - the aircraft are alternated! It was either 28000 or 29000. Anyone know which of the 2 it was?

According to a documentary i saw no more than 4 hours ago the fighters first escorted Air Force One on 9/11. Before then it had never had military jet escorts but who knows.

Back on topic. The story of it being a training exercise doesn't make any sense at all. If it was (and what are the chances of that?) then it was extremely reckless thing to do.

It doesn't add up.

And you guys thought the Bush administration did some strange things?

I'm at a loss for words over this one. But I will say if this had happened on the watch of a Republican - well, the MSM would be yelling with pitchforks and torches right about now and Olbermann and Stewart would have to open their big mouths about what a traumatic thing to do to New Yorkers.

But, since this happened on the Obama watch, Olbermann will find something else to whine about and Stewart will ignore the event since he "hates to make fun of liberals".

Mayor Bloomberg was not aware this was going to happen. The director of HR for my company contacted the Jersey City police to find out what they knew and they were not aware of this flight taking place. You have to wonder who exactly was told about this event in advance because nobody in the area seemed to have any idea what was going on.

Check out this paragraph from the MSNBC story - you're gonna LOVE this:


The NYPD said the flight "was authorized by the FAA for the vicinity of the Statue of Liberty, with directives to local authorities not to disclose information about it, but to direct all inquiries to the FAA."


www.msnbc.msn.com...

So it seems like the whole excuse about the early warning system breaking down was a crock of BS.

It's actually looking like they were doing this on purpose! I wonder if they were studying public panic?

are we certain this was AF1? Could it be a 747 that was painted up for the job?

Doesn't need to be the exact type of 747 as most people wouldn't know a -100 from a -400
