THE FAA HAS ADVISED THAT TWO (2) MILITARY F-15 AIRCRAFT WILL BE PERFORMING A FLYOVER OVER NEW YORK CITY AT 1330 HOURS ON FRIDAY, AUGUST 17TH, 2007. THE AIRCRAFT WILL FLY ALONG THE EAST RIVER AND THEN VEER OUT TO THE EAST.

THIS NOTIFICATION IS PROVIDED FOR INFORMATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY AND IS INTENDED TO ALLAY ANY CONCERNS OR FEARS OF POTENTIAL MILITARY ACTIVITY OVER NEW YORK CITY AIRSPACE AS A RESULT OF WITNESSING THIS SCHEDULED EVENT.

Aha!

Here's the Air Force's description of the F-15 Eagle. Last year, a Stealth bomber did a flyover over Yankee Stadium.
