A White House official apologized Monday after a low-flying Boeing 747 spotted above the Manhattan skyline frightened residents and prompted workers to evacuate buildings.
The aircraft, which functions as Air Force One when the president is aboard, was taking part in a classified, government-sanctioned photo shoot, the Federal Aviation Administration said. The incident outraged many New Yorkers, including Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
