Air Force Flyover Planned Past Statue of Liberty

NEW YORK (CBS2 /AP) — The NYPD says flyovers will be conducted past the Statue of Liberty.

It says the Brazilian Air Force “Smoke Squadron” will fly nine turboprop airplanes on Thursday as part of a photo opportunity.

They will make two passes past the statue at 10 a.m. before flying to Portsmouth, N.H.

The planes are painted in the colors of the Brazilian flag: bright green and yellow. There will be no armament of any kind on any of the aircraft.
