Now I can see why they shit their pants.
I was, and not really.

Are they running away from the shoreline, and TOWARDS the buildings?
i know. I've never understood why people flee in all sorts of random bat-shit directions like that.
MOO, MOOO, MOOOOO!
Least lemmings have the balls to stampede toward cliffs and jump off in a hard-core badass sorta way. This just makes me cringe and feel ashamed to be of the same species....
What are we running from again? Oh yeah a plane that is moving at 300 mph.. run faster!
|Cleaner82 - 2009-04-28 |
Yeah, that uh... is it possible to call a massive aerial display tacky? Tacky. Boorish even.

I know the FAA claims they notified the proper local authorities, but someone needs to be fired for coming up with such a monumentally stupid idea in the first place.
Actually, the FAA and WH Military Office instructed those people to keep it a secret and not contact the media about the flyby. So yeah, heads should definitely roll.

New Yorkers shrug planes flying into buildings off like a cloudy day. You midwest pussies might scream and run, but we look at St. Michael playing his horn and say, " Really? That's all ya got?" The clear sign this video is bullshit, is there are people in parks. No one in New York actually goes to a park willingly. But ok, lets run with it; Remember yokel idiots, New York is dangerous, and we love terrorists, so stay the fuck away. - Brought to by the New York City Bureau of Tourism.
People go to parks here all the time. Where else are you going to get high and have risky sex with a stranger on a tuesday evening?
Besides my mom's house on a saturday morning.

Planes fly that close to my house on a daily basis.
you're an idiot
Considering it was AIR FORCE ONE (or whatever it is called when the prez isn't onboard) ambling along with fighter jets in formation, no lower or more acrobatic than those of us that live under airport approaches see all the time, I dunno I thought New Yorkers would be less shrill and spastic than the response to this has been
|splatterbabble - 2009-04-28 |
Needs a "white people" tag.
Wow, splatter, you are stupid.
Much like Eddie Murphy said about the Amityville Horror, stereotypically you wouldn't see a lot of black folks hanging around to see what the matter was.
Yes, this is stereotyping, but, then, so are the "white people" and "black people" tags.

Okay I can see how you might be a little disturbed, but flipping panicking and going all Run, run! is a little much. New York, you are ruining your image.

What's that plane doing totally the fuck out of usual air travel lanes and near the Statue of Liberty?
Shit shit shit... oh, what's that? Looks like there's an F-16 escorting it.
Huh. No worries I guess, but it's still a little strange. Well, there's bound to be a story behind this. Something to look for in the paper tomorrow...
You think having a military fighter jet following a 747 will make people think its 'less' likely to do with terrorism?
less likely to crash into a building if there's a fighter ready to shoot it's ass down into the water the moment it makes a wrong turn.
The fighter either means it's not terrorist or that it was, but everything's under control now.
Either way, no squealing in panic.
When its two F-16's in loose formation off the wings of a 747 with air force insignia? I would certainly hope if the jets were in pursuit of a rouge airliner they'd be doing more than that
"Oh look honey, a jet fighter's getting ready to shoot down a passenger plane over NYC, there's nothing to worry about."
Seriously, what? In that scenario whether it shoots it down or not, you're in an ongoing terrorist attack involving massive casualties and risk of being killed by debris. And you think that's reassuring? When a guy is running toward you holding a suspicious package, its much more worrying to see a cop pointing a gun at him.

Mil1: Quick! How can we distract the public away from the interrogation memos?
Mil2: Oh I know! ...

What a monumentally retarded plan.
I'm referring to the photo-op, but the crowd's decision to run in the direction of the plane is also pretty stupid.
There's a couple of subway stations on the border of Battery Park (as I recall). To be honest, I'd probably run to Castle Clinton. 8 foot thick sandstone walls probably wouldn't save you from a jumbo-jet load of burning kerosine, but they'd do a fine job of deflecting shrapnel.

I'll bet that looks a lot lower without the wide angle lens.

Holy dogshit. That sound is terrifying.
