Incident evokes memories of 2009 panic in New York

A mysterious aircraft flew dangerously low over Austin today, evoking memories of how New Yorkers were terrified by a similar incident three years ago.
Austin radio host Alex Jones reported seeing the plane flying at the level of the city’s highest skyscrapers, coming dangerously close to hitting them. The aircraft made several passes before leaving for another area of the city.
The footage above shows the plane filmed at a different location flying at a higher altitude.
Jones compared the incident to when the government flew a Boeing 747 over New York City in 2009 as part of a photo-op, evoking memories of 9/11 and sending thousands of people into a “total panic”.
Although it’s likely the flyover was part of some kind of military exercise, which has occurred over Austin before, no explanation was offered by the Air Force.
Jones speculated that the aircraft could have been an E4B ‘doomsday plane’, although other images show the E4B has additional sets of landing gear to those shown on the plane in the video above.
The E4B ‘doomsday plane’ is one of only four operated by the US Air Force. The aircraft serves, “as a survivable mobile command post for the National Command Authority, namely the President of the United States, the Secretary of Defense, and successors.”
The E4B was spotted flying over restricted airspace near the White House on the morning of 9/11 as the terror attack unfolded.
Twitter users also reported seeing the plane.
