5/10/2009 Update:

Say “Cheesy”

Front page headlines, buildings evacuated, fingers pointed. All that – for this:

See video after the jump…

4/27/2009 Update:

Someone sent this iPhone video of what it looked like from downtown Manhattan – pretty scary looking!

4/27/2009:

It’s OK, everyone – no need to panic!

For Gov’t photo shoot

CBS2 News Said:

“Some military aircraft flying over lower Manhattan caused a brief scare for residents, workers, and pedestrians on Monday, but CBS 2 has learned the jets are part of a Department of Defense photo shoot and that there is no threat to the city.”

One Hoboken411 reader sent this exclusive iPhone photo in a short while ago from a downtown Jersey City Battery Park office building:

Anyone who believes the purpose of this mission was to take a photo of Air Force One is pretty gullible.

If you blow up the photo and look carefully you’ll see the tiny faces of big money Obama donors peering out the windows and pointing.

After making my pedantic remark (above) I actually LOOKED at the photo and saw why 411 posted it. It’s craptastic!

So let me get this straight: they sent a 747 up the Hudson for thousands of dollars for some F-16 guy to take a few snapshots? It’s poorly composed and features reflected canopy light and part of the cockpit in the lower right.

Yeah I believe this was about photo taking. Uh huh. What ever you say, Chief.
