Six F-16 jets zooming will be zooming over NYC this morning to remind godless seditious New Yorkers that the American military's still got it.
According to an alert from Notify NYC, "The US Air Force Thunderbirds are scheduled to conduct a flyover photo mission tomorrow, Friday, 5/22, from 10:30 AM - 11:30 AM, over various areas around NYC."
The event will consist of six F-16 aircraft in addition to the aircraft taking photographs. The F-16's will maintain an altitude of 1500 - 2000 feet. The aircraft will travel westbound from Long Island over the water near the south shores of Queens and Brooklyn before turning and navigating north over the Verrazano Bridge, and up the east side of the Hudson River to the Tappan Zee Bridge. From there, the aircraft will turn around and travel southbound over the west side of the Hudson River to the Verrazano Bridge, before traveling northbound up the east side of the Hudson River to finish their route. The rain date for the event is scheduled for Monday, 5/25 at 9:00 AM.
The Thunderbirds participate in numerous demonstrations throughout the year (they were at the Super Bowl)—this weekend they'll be at the Bethpage Air Show. If you see them today, you'll want to pump up the soundtrack that accompanies them in this video:
