Highway in the sky

Military aircraft use the Hudson as a kind of sky highway for moving north at low altitudes. On Sunday, this Marine King Stallion flew past NYC at 300 feet. The chopper originated at McGuire Airforce Base in Lakehurst NJ which hosts a Marine reserve aviation logistics unit, and flew up the river into Dutchess County, made a loop around Anthony’s Nose and came back. A 1.5 hour training mission I assume, and a beautiful day for it.
