Air Force One causes panic in Manhattan

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Didn't someone realise that a low flying airliner being followed by a fighter would cause some... concern, as it flew over Manhattan?

    Air Force One 'Ooops' moment
  2. I find it absolutely unbelievable that there was no general announcement before the flight. It doesn't have to mention AF1 just a low flying aircraft.
  3. Why would the paranoid Yanks announce something like that??!!
  4. Seen the footage. Not AF1 unless their President was on it.Major admin fookup if nobody announced it beforehand. Cool vid otherwise :)

    Edit: shooting it down on the otherhand :D
  5. Do you get an interview at the white house without coffee?
    cost of us air force gazillions
    flying air force one with fighter escort $20000
    low flying over New york without telling anyone Priceless :roll:
  6. They don't mention "AF1" in the article.

    Why would it be an admin fcuk up if there was no plan to announce the flight? Have you read the article? Can you read at all, or just look at the pretty pictures?
  7. Did someone get out of bed the wrong side this morning? :D
  8. I got up!! What more do you want?!?!?! :D
  9. Read the thread little girl. Count the AF1 references and then get back to me .
  10. Little girl.....ooooooh. I've read it once. Not once does it mention "Air Force One"
  11. Hmm, they didn't even tell the mayor... Tell's you how much they trust him. Maybe he's an al-Qaeda mole....
  12. The yanks are a bit touchy aren't they.

    NEWS JUST IN: Hundreds call police in panic as red bus and tube train are seen in london.
  13. I know it's only 'Air Force One' if the President is on board, but it is a more punchy headline than 'Aeroplane causes panic in Manhattan', and most folk see that aircraft as Air Force One because that's what the world media call it for the most part.

    It still doesn't detract from the fact that this was a stupid stunt!
  14. I love this site!!!!! ;)

    New York is on the brink of mass hysteria brokered by the sight of a low flying aircraft in their skies and we on ARRSE are debating what the name of the aircraft should be!

    Makes you proud to be an ARRSER. :salut:
  15. Why would a low flying aircraft cause panic in New York?
