NYC residents alerted to flyovers during fireworks show

New York City residents, be on guard - there will be several aircraft flyovers of Manhattan as part of the Macy's Fourth of July fireworks display.

City emergency management officials sent out a notification that between 7 and 8:30 p.m., residents can expect to see and hear a plane pulling a large American flag, four F-15 military fighter jets and New York City Police Department helicopters.

All flyovers will be near the Hudson River, where the fireworks display will be held.

On April 27, 2009, a Manhattan flyover of Air Force One for a photo opportunity sent some people into a panic over fears of another terrorist attack from the air. President Barack Obama accepted the resignation of White House Military Office director Louis Caldera after an internal report faulted his handling of the flight.
