New Photos Released From Obama’s Air Force One Flyover Blunder

New Photos Released From Flyover Blunder | NBC New York

“Responding to dozens of requests from the public, the Defense Department has released 146 more photos from the infamous Air Force One flyover that struck fear in thousands of unsuspecting New Yorkers in April.

The photos are posted right on the Pentagon’s Website, defense officials said today.  The Pentagon also released a heavily redacted flight manifest.

The April 27 photo-op caused quite a fright in Lower Manhattan and New Jersey, as many people who had lived through the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks thought the city was again under siege.  Workers poured out of office buildings as the planes buzzed the city near the Financial District.

Local officials in New York and New Jersey had not been informed of the photo-op, which cost some $328,000, and the lack of communication and needless worry caused by the incident led to the resignation of Louis Caldera, the Obama official behind the stunt.”

THERE has been little respite from bankruptcy and foreclosure for long-suffering home-owners in Florida, but one group of residents has reason to be grateful for President Barack Obama’s economic stimulus programme.

The turtles, lizards, newts and tree frogs that live around Lake Jackson, near Tallahassee, are due to benefit from a new $3.4m (£2.1m) tunnel that will enable them to migrate under one of the state’s busiest roads without getting squashed.
