A flyover by four military jet trainers will help the New York Mets celebrate 2010 Opening Day Monday at Citi Field, officials said.
The four Northrop T-38C Talons, which were the world's first supersonic jet trainer aircraft when introduced into service in 1961, are slated to fly over the field at about 1,000 feet just before 1 p.m. Monday.
They will fly in and out of nearby LaGuardia Airport, the NYPD said, departing the airport at about 12:40 p.m. and returning after their Citi Field visit.
The Mets are scheduled to open the season against the Florida Marlins at 1:10 p.m.
Former Mets slugger Darryl Strawberry is to throw out the first pitch.
The weather is expected to cooperate: Forecasters say it will be mostly sunny, with a high near 71.
