A 777 will be flying over the Hudson River around 2-3 p.m. on Tuesday as part of a commemoration — a commemoration of what, we’re not sure, but it might have to do with this American Airlines mechanic who has been on the job for 75 years. Talk about job security!
In any case, a 777 is a large aircraft and it’s flying at a very low altitude, so we though we’d give everyone who isn’t subscribed to Notify NYC a heads-up.
“Notification issued 7/17/17 at 5:37 PM. On, 7/18, between 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM, a B777 aircraft will be conducting a commemorative flyover in the vicinity of Hudson River, Manhattan towards La Guardia airport before returning to JFK airport. The aircraft will fly at an altitude of 3000 – 4000 feet.”
Thanks to Stan for the tip.
I have a view to the west. Will look out for it!
Hey – let’s freak out New Yorkers to commemorate some guys 75 years on the job!! Am I the only one who thinks this is a bad idea?
Given that there is lots of warning, hopefully people can handle it without too much stress. 75 years is pretty impressive! But I do think it is a really weird way of commemorating it. A flight around the world, maybe . . .
on the job as a mechanic for 75 years???
did he start when he was 15? even then…
The linked article states he is 91.
Well, I guess I don’t have to worry about it hitting the mast on the sail boat .
No pictures?? Did anyone see it?
I think planes fly at that altitude all the time over the Hudson on the approach to LGA…
