Why on earth would you need some "file photos" of Air Force One anyway?
And if you wanted to show the plane flying over New York - why not photo-shop it?
Should US government money be used to involve a military jet and Air Force One on a major operation just to take a photo of it?
And if you are going to fly over New York, why the Sam Hill do it around the site of the former World Trade Center?
And if you tell the state and local authorities, why the heck wasn't a warning broadcast to New Yorkers?
This really does come under the heading of thundering stupidity of the highest order.
