Did the Federal Aviation Administration Accidentally Confirm Chelsea Clinton’s Wedding?

Übermittelt
 
In a serious blow to curious pilots hoping to spy on Chelsea Clinton’s wedding from midair, the Federal Aviation Administration has temporarily prohibited “flights below 2,000 feet for the area surrounding the estate on the Hudson River where Ms. Clinton is to be married,” reports The New York Times. Gawker, which flew a banner over Rush Limbaugh’s nuptials, has conceded this morning that due to the airspace ban, they are unable to do the same at the Clinton ceremony.

TFR's for "VIP's" neeed to stop. There are ever increasing numbers of TFR's - not for safety's sake, but rather for the movement of the elite . . . our elected representatives. A week long VIP TFR in Southampton, Long Island . . . airspace shutdown for a vacationing VIP . . . really??? Enough.

I could give a rats behind about Chelsea Clinton's wedding and am sick of hearing about it. She can go the way of the rest of the former first children. No one can probably even tell me if Amy Carter is married or not.

I assume that the Secret Service would want this TFR for dignitary protection. I am thinking it is not just to keep banners or ENG helos away from a "celebrity".

From a security standpoint, I would assume the guestlist to be pretty weighty, beyond just the parents. Needless to say, I could imagine an evildoer licking his chops at the thought of targeting that soiree....
