"Let's Fly a Plane Through NYC for a Photo Op & Not Tell Anyone! GREAT IDEA!"

I mean seriously? Did the F.A.A REALLY think that NO one would freak out? Are you fucking out of your mind?
"I'd call this felony stupidity. This is probably not the right job for Mr. Caldera to be in if he didn't understand the likely reaction of New Yorkers, of the mayor," Townsend said Tuesday on CNN's "American Morning." -- CNN reports. WELL... It's a little too late now, don't you think? I hope they fired that guy.
So the Air Force One was taking part in a "classified photo op", which was a secret... except for the 8 million people that live and work there every single day.

It was actually going to be unnoticeable. AGAIN, WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE!!! If you were going to do this in a remote area, okay then I can understand the secrecy, but WHAT DID THEY THINK WOULD HAPPEN! I mean, use common sense here people.
""An F.A.A. memo last week said information about the exercise “should only be shared with persons with a need to know” and “shall not be released to the public or the media.” "

Now... in that situation, WHO exactly are the people who "need to know"? And it shouldn't be released to the public or media?! Until a plane flew eye level to their office on the 80th floor?!
Did they believe that people would just sit there calmly and not do shit? Seriously?

This makes me really angry. The fact that they don't even think to put something in the paper or on the news, they wouldn't even need to say WHY, just a heads up -- "Hey, there will be a plane flying really close to the buildings in NYC today, its a photo op, so don't freak out, its not another 9/11 okay?" No. Nothing. Something is better than nothing!

Well I hope people didn't actually get hurt because of this. I would really like to know WHY. Why would you even need a picture of a plane flying that close to buildings anyway? Are you trying to stage a fake terrorist attack? Like what is the reason behind that.. Who would even want pictures of that. Idiots. There is no other word! Well --there are, there are many actually, but I choose not to name them because I would just be cursing.

The boyfriend's knows someones wife who was working in one of the buildings that it flew by. She said that everyone in her office panicked, and her thoughts were "well I won't make it since all these people just ran down the stairs before me, so I'm just going to sit here and continue doing my work." I am not sure what I would have done. I think I might have tried to get out.. I am not sure, but that would probably be my initial thought reaction. I hope if someone got hurt that they sue those idiots for endangering their lives!


On a positive note, 2 more days until Friday :)

I cannot imagine the terror that ya'll went through yesterday. How stupid can the FAA really be? Why did it need to stay "hush-hush"? Oh yeah, I remember, 'cause we're in a recession and blowing tax $$ for a photo op. What the hell!?

Children of the Nineties said...

I saw this too, it is completely ridiculous. I agree, what needed to be a secret about this so it could result in all sorts of panicking?

The Novelista Barista said...

I know... what incompetent idiots! YAH! what the hell are they doing spend a shit load of money taking photos of planes in NYC! Dont we have ENOUGH photos of that?!

Fidgeting Gidget said...

Morons...seriously. What happened to COMMON SENSE?!?!?!

Aritza, Goddess of .. said...

OMG, such idiots, I can't believe this, there should really be a class action against the FAA for this !!!

KekeLynn said...

I still can't believe that happened! Who knows what kind of emotional trauma that will bring to so many people who have had to deal with what happened on 9/11.

There should absolutely be some kind of real punishment for the people who did this.

The standard "oops, sorry" is not going to cut it on this one!

BTW, great blog!

The Novelista Barista said...

I know... its insane. To make people relive that fear again is wrong. Who would actually stop and think, "OH this must be a photo shoot for the government"
Stupid people that run our country. WOW.

The Novelista Barista said...

btw thanks kekelynn :)

remember moments said...

What they did is wrong is so so so many ways. Idiots!

the girl in stiletto said...

omgd, that is so insensitive. how could they do that? don't they know that people WILL freak out. i mean, the 9/11 is still fresh in most minds, and they expect people not to freak out with the "stunt"? don't they know how to use photoshop to create the exact picture without having to fly the plane for real? i mean, hollywood is advance enough with this kind cinematography right?

The Wife in Stilettos said...

oh yeah! i saw this in yesterday's evening news... what were they thinking?!

for the love of pictures said...

This was completely irresponsible of them. Hopefully they actually realize just how stupid their actions were.

On that second, more positive, note, yea! please get here quicker Friday :)

My Wooden Heart said...

I saw this on the news and could not believe it!!!

CRAZY people.

I can't believe that this happened. Moreso, where the hell was I? I have read your post twice now, and will be googling this topic after I leave your blog. It is tragic how callous some people can be.

Great topic, great post!

Of course people will be shocked with this! And they had enough already. They should announce it on tv and papers first at least :/

The Novelista Barista said...

I REALLY hope they fire those people... because these people really need not to make mistakes like that again.
