Two Landed on 22 at LGA and the other two returned to base. I would imagine based on similar events in the past the crew of the two at LGA were taken to the game and will I presume fly out mid day Friday. Again this is speculation, nothing for sure.

Maybe practicing for a photoshoot of the two Queens - QE2 and QM2 in NYC together in a couple of weeks time, on 25 April. They sail within an hour of each other on their transatlantic journeys to Southampton.
Some years back, there was a great pic of BA Concorde flying over lower Manhattan with QE2 below - it could have been a Photoshop job.
The ultimate pic was the QE2 sailing up the English Channel, escorted by the Red Arrows fighter exhibition team, and above them the BA Concorde in the centre - all photographed from an aircraft above the lot, by Adrian Meredith! Adrian also shot the pic of four Concordes flying in formation.

Going OT a bit now, but I guess one of you new yorkers may be able to help me.
Is Concorde open to the public at the USS Intrepid yet? I ask as it would be nice to go see it when I am in New York next week (14-18apr). (I know I can see Concorde here at MAN - but it will be also nice to see it in NYC).

Why the hell does a crappy baseball game require a flyover by a bunch of F-15s? Quite stupid if you ask me. It freaks people out, especially in Manhattan, and its a big waste of money. Professional sports are for the bored and unsophisticated amongst us.

***I believe that they are F-15s'.
The Yankees will prevail again this year!***
Just like they prevailed against the "WORLD CHAMPION FLORIDA MARLINS"!!!

Maybe because baseball is America's pastime! To quote Sgt. Hulka in Stripes..."Lighten up Francis!"
I saw some F/A 18's do a flyover of Joe Robbie Stadium before a Monday Night Football game. FULL Afterburners!!! WOW, Makes me proud to be an American!
Warren747SP....Joe Robbie Stadium home of...the "WORLD CHAMPION FLORIDA MARLINS"!!!
Sorry, just enjoying the "WORLD CHAMPION FLORIDA MARLINS"!!!

: " After the flyby two of the four landed at LGA... " AA 777, nice photograph! You're photo or someone else's? How far away were you? Nice tight shot.
: Either that F-14 is huge or the pilots are scrawny (or both)! As filthy as that jet looks, I would think it would be easily confused with an Air Franc
: It's mostly that it's huge. F-14s are rather large fighters at 61'9" long (18.6 meters), 16' high (4.8 meters), and having a 64' unswept wingspan (18
: Thank you Carduelis. Very impressive work by your friend there. Thanks again.
: ANA777Master, You don't know how big the -14s are if you are working around them for 12 hours a day. I just did that the last 3 weeks supporting VF-31
