Fighter Jets @ EWR?

Sat Sep 11, 2010 1:09 am

Father of a friend said a bunch of fighters landed today at KEWR. Any idea what they're doing there?
Some see lines, others see between the lines.

Maybe staging for patrols or potential emergency flights for tomorrow?

Very strange/eerie to hear them around 3pm They were heading north towards EWR.
Almost the same pattern as the approach. They were landing on 4 this
afternoon.

There is 4 F-15's for the US Open Fly Over and 5 F-16's for the NY Giants home game on Sunday at EWR. There will be a B-2 for the Jets game Monday night

Somehow that's fitting for the Jets - it should be dark by then, and no one will see it...
