Since 9/11, we've got military jets flying overhead.
Beleive me, I don't know the details.
Please tell me it's for the percieved threat that we'd fire upon an airliner in the vicinity. Otherwise, I think they are useless waste of our tax payer dollars!
I love jets, but I really don't see what an F-15 or 16 would do? God forbid we had another terrorsit threat in NYC what would they do? Circle and watch? Shoot down the city?
I apologize if I am being too practical. But as much as I love our jets, I don't see they utility.
I could see an EA-6B Prowler or Viking S-3 or AWACS in the area doing some sort of James Bondish recon and surveillance over NYC, listening in on everything going down in the city. But hey, who am I kidding??
