THE BRONX — The Jets might not be in the Super Bowl, but some will be flying near the stadium in the leadup to the big game.
Two F-16 planes, a small passenger jet and UH-60 military helicopter will conduct an Air Force exercise over the Hudson River about 4:30 a.m. Wednesday in preparation for the big game, according to the police department.
The aircraft are set to fly between 5,000 and 7,000 feet and won't be visible from the ground, but may be heard by people along the river in The Bronx and Lower Westchester County, the NYPD added.
The exercise will last for about an hour, with the aircraft finishing their exercise at Farmingdale Airport in Long Island.
The planes will not fly over the stadium during the game, a police spokeswoman said.
