chelsea-clinton-marc-mezvinsky New York, July 29 (ANI): If media reporters are hoping to catch an aerial view of Chelsea Clinton’s wedding, they better have a contingency plan.

According to The New York Times, The Federal Aviation Administration has decided to ban flights below 2,000 feet for the area surrounding the estate on the Hudson River where Clinton is to be married.

The F.A.A. also routinely bans flights at the request of the Secret Service when a senior federal official or dignitary’s safety is at issue.

In this case, with the mother of the bride being the secretary of state and the father a former president, that was the concern.

A spokeswoman for the F.A.A. said Wednesday that the Secret Service had requested the flight restriction. (ANI)
