"the possibility of public concern regarding DOD (Department of Defense) aircraft flying at low altitudes"
in an around New York City.
But they demanded total secrecy from the NYPD, the Secret Service, the FBI and even the mayor's office and threatened federal sanctions if the secret got out."Web Link
