A Boeing airplane escorted by a military jet flew low over lower Manhattan on Monday, frightening office workers and spurring evacuations in what turned out to be a U.S. government-approved publicity operation.
The maneuvering of the 747, which circled around some skyscrapers, recalled memories of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, which resulted in the deaths of thousands after two hijacked commercial airplanes rammed into the World Trade Center. Onlookers and evacuated workers said they were incredulous that government agencies didn't issue an advisory to alert a public still scarred from 9/11.
OK, I get that they might have some recollection of 9/11, but I didn't hear any of this about the US Air flight that landed unplanned in the Hudson.
They issued a notice. What's the big deal? Yet Bloomberg was furious? Schumer was irate?
