Because of a recent scare and freak out for some here in NYC when a plane flew too low for comfort and nobody knew why, I just received this advisory from my job and I wanted to share with you:
NYPD provided information regarding a military aircraft flyover that will occur on May 20, 2009 at 11:45 A.M. The flyover is part of the Fleet Week festivities and will include four military planes flying over New York City at a low altitude.
At approximately 11:45 A.M., four F-18 Hornets will pass over the Verrazano Narrows Bridge at an altitude of 2000 feet. The aircrafts will then turn and follow the Hudson River north over the assembled fleet while decreasing their altitude to 1000 feet. When the F-18s reach Pier 90, they will climb to 2500 feet and higher, exiting New York City airspace over the George Washington Bridge.
