Continental Airlines Flight 3021, bringing military personnel back from Operation Iraqi Freedom, buzzed the skyline around 8:30 a.m., flying near the Statue of Liberty and lower Manhattan, where the twin towers of the World Trade Center were destroyed in the September 11, 2001, terror attacks.

The FAA said the pilots of the plane had requested the fly-by and it was approved "to provide a special homecoming for members of our armed forces." It said such requests had been approved in the past for troops coming to and from the Afghanistan war theater.

Several residents called 911, reporting the plane flying low overhead.

One resident said he immediately thought of September 11 and the recent terror attacks in Saudi Arabia and wondered, "Could it be happening again?"

"It was a terrible, terrible feeling," he said.

where my parents live, when you drive the highway to their house, BWI
airport is located right next to it. So when the planes come in to land, I
swear they are only a few hundred feet up from the cars. Ever since
9/11, I swear they're closer. Everyone is paranoid about planes now.

i don't think they planned the specific date to corespond with our
emergency #. I just think it worked well in their plans to do it that day.
Sheer coincedence.
