Aide resigns over NY plane scare

A senior White House aide has quit over his role in a presidential plane’s low-level fly-past that caused panic among New York office workers.

The White House said President Barack Obama had accepted the resignation of military office director Louis Caldera. The photo opportunity fly-past prompted the evacuation of a number of offices. Correspondents say it revived memories of the September 2001 attacks in which hijackers flew planes into the World Trade Center towers. The half-hour fly-past by a presidential jet and a fighter plane escort on April 27 did not involve Mr. Obama.

He’s definitely going to fly low from now on!
