The backup Air Force One followed by a fighter jet was doing an authorized flyby of the Statue of Liberty.

However many on the ground only saw that a commercial airliner being followed by a fighter jet was flying low near Manhattan. Obviously this caused a bit of panic on the ground.

Buildings were evacuated during the confusion and many workers simply left for home.

Reuters Article

Fox News Article


The appearance of a plane escorted by two fighter jets in lower Manhattan was part of a "photo op," and not a cause for alarm, a Federal Aviation Administration officials said, but that didn't stop several area buildings from evacuating.


Wall Street Journal Article

Staten Island Article


The incident invoked memories of Sept. 11, 2001 when two hijacked commercial airliners flew into the World Trade Center towers.



The President was not on board and this was a "photo op."



Fox News reports two fighter jets


The appearance of a plane escorted by two fighter jets in lower Manhattan was part of a "photo op,"


However all other sources report one fighter escort.




EDIT: I apologize I did not see the other thread.


(Note to mods: Since the other thread does not have the Reuters, Fox News or Wall Street Journal sources should I post them in that thread? (and have this thread closed) Or what should I do?)

If this was a photo shoot, Did one of the f-16s get in front of Air Force One?? or is this all just BS, Radio talk show this morning brought up some theorys, one was it was stolen to prove security measures weren't in place in our military, we have "equal opportunity" military, all races, all religions, who knows some crazy A** MF might've been flying that, maybe it was a drill, but if nothing else, why wouldn't the Mayor have been Notified???????? Something is wrong with this Government... This United States Current Government seems to mirror that of the British in The Movie "V for Vendetta". Way to Drop the Ball USAF

I saw it over Bayonne, NJ.. and yes, the fighter jet did get in front of the plane.. From what I saw, it flew behind it, then when they were about to turn it flew along side, and after the turn it was in front of the plane. Trust me, it was a scary sight, but they were flying slow and what seemed to be a pattern because it flew by me 3 times in a matter of 15 minutes.
