Neil Graves, in the February 19 edition of the New York Post, writes that New Yorkers from lower Manhattan to Brooklyn were jolted awake when what seems to have been a military jet buzzed overhead in the middle of the night.
Residents said windows rattled and buildings shook when the low-flying jet roared over the city at approximately 4:30 a.m. A second boom erupted a few minutes later. ?I haven?t been that scared since September 11,? says one person who was awakened by the sound.
?My wife heard the plane coming through on 9/11, and she thought it was that all over again,? says a man who lives near Ground Zero.
Heidi Reich, who lives in Greenwich Village, says, ?I thought I?d walk downstairs and not see the Empire State Building anymore.?
