No idea what this was for and I don't know if this is related, but I noticed that the Ground Zero Tribute in Light was tested last night.

Military Flyover - US Open - 9/9/12 (QN)
Notification issued 9/9/12 at 12:00 PM. Weather permitting, the U.S. Air Force will conduct a flyover of the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing Meadows-Corona Park, Queens, today at 4:30 PM, in support of the US Open. The flyover will consist of four (4) F-15E Strike Eagles passing over the Tennis Center (via the Long Island Sound) at an altitude of approximately 1,000 feet. The aircraft will depart from/return to Newark Liberty International Airport.


F-15 Eagles:


F-15 Eagle and F-15 Strike Eagle. Relatively large (length = 64 feet), the size and shape of the two F-15s are almost identical. The fuselage of the Strike Eagle is a bit wider to carry bombs internally.

These jets are recognized by the long pointy nose from a cylindrical fuselage. The air intakes are located on the sides of the fuselage, and the openings (shaded gray) are slanted back on the bottom to make a large, rectangular opening towards the ground. The wings are triangular, and the trailing edge is almost straight. The horizontal tail fins are splayed outward and have a notch on the leading edge. There are two exhausts.
