"But the flyover was nothing but a photo op, apparently one of a series of flights to get pictures of the plane in front of national landmarks. It was carried out by the Defense Department with little warning, infuriating New York officials and putting the White House on the defense. Even Mayor Michael Bloomberg didn't know about it, and he later called it "insensitive" to fly so near the site of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks."

Plane Flyover - Come ON!
In case you missed it, NYC was outraged yesterday after the government organized a flyover of an empty Air Force One 747 escorted by a fighter jet over lower Manhattan. Workers and city officials panicked, with people seeing the plane and fearing another terrorist attack. Even Mayor Bloomberg was unaware of the "photo shoot."
Why on earth does the government need to fly a 747 in front of national landmarks and take pictures of it? Honestly - they could do this with Photoshop in 5 minutes. Something doesn't add up here.
