This afternoon, Delta Airlines will conduct a short, low altitude flight over the New York/New Jersey metropolitan area as part of the airline’s 75th anniversary celebration.
The flight will leave from JFK Airport at 12:30 p.m and fly at an altitude of 4,000 feet. The flight path will bring the plane over the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island and then up along the Hudson River to the George Washington Bridge. It will then fly over LaGuardia Airport on its way back to JFK.
While the aircraft will fly a route much lower than a typical airline flight, it will follow a safe, pre-approved flight plan and no one should not be alarmed

Fox News was playing the takeoff clip of the specially-painted DC3, then the anchor continued to narrate the clip and said the plane was a Boeing 757. I wanted to reach through the screen and slap him. How can you make that mistake as a writer?!? Call up Delta PR if you don't know what the aircraft is.

How can someone call a DC-3 a 757...surely that guy has flown before! You ask 100 people on the street is this is a 757 (and show a picture of a DC3) I'd say 95% would say no and 3% would say I don't know! The wrioter was in the other 2%
