NEW YORK (CBSNewYork)Fighter jet flyovers are planned through Tuesday, to mark Air Force Week 2012.

The Air Force Thunderbirds are conducting the flyovers.

There was another flyover Sunday at the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum in conjunction with the opening ceremony for Air Force Week NYC.

The Mets will get a flyover on Monday evening, ahead of their game against the Colorado Rockies. And on Tuesday, the military jets will conduct a flyover ahead of the Brooklyn Cyclones game.
