Heads Up! Flyover Planned Past Lady Liberty
The NYPD says flyovers will be conducted past the Statue of Liberty.
It says the Brazilian Air Force 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.
