Hmmm…Are New Yorkers more on edge, given all of the additional obvious security measures being taken to protect our President-elect? 

No-fly zones have been put in place around President-elect Donald Trump’s residence at Trump Tower in New York City.

The restriction around Trump Tower bans aircraft from flying below 3,000 feet within two nautical miles of the building, mostly affecting aircraft flying in and out of La Guardia, though it shouldn’t significantly impact flights. The Indianapolis restriction is only within one mile of the VP-elect’s Indiana home, and applies up to 1500 feet.

It applies to all aircraft, except military aircraft supporting United States Secret Service operations; law enforcement, firefighting, or medevac flights on active missions, or aircraft operating with in-flight emergencies.

A military plane circled low over Manhattan for several minutes on Tuesday afternoon, and initially, nobody seemed to know why.
