An Explanation for the NYC Flyover that Actually Makes Sense
Commenter Mustang0302 at Tom McGuire's blog has an interesting theory on the flyover.
>>At least one of the escorting F-16s was from the Alabama ANG, Red Tail and all.
Could this photo op mission have any particular connection to a new movie due out this year?
Could that connection explain the WHMO's eagerness to get some current glamour shots of BHO's A/C, escorted by the descendants of the Tuskegee Airmen, while flathatting over "the target formerly known as Ground Zero"?
Just imagine the powerful, beautiful imagery of these aircraft during this mission, accompanied by a stirring soundtrack, playing over the closing credits, or released as publicity stills or fundraising fodder - "Yes, America, sleep well...BHO's got you covered."
Well, minus the terrified, fleeing citizens on the ground, of course. Ooops. Caldera, you take this one.
"Mission Accomplished", indeed.
Naw, I'll bet I'm wrong. Coincidences, all...surely.
So they were putting together some footage which would be useful to George Lucas' upcoming film about the Tuskegee Airmen of WWII, known as the Red Tails. Best explanation so far.
