The New York City Police Department advises
that a military aircraft flyover will occur today, Wednesday, May 20, 2009.
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 1145 hrs., 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.
