New York: Federal authorities have
ordered the closure of airspace over the small New York town
hosting Chelsea Clinton`s wedding this weekend.
The Federal Aviation Authority yesterday said the ban
would apply to aircraft flying under 610 metres over the
Astor Courts estate just outside Rhinebeck.
The ban, termed "temporary flight restrictions for VIP
(Very Important Person) Movement," runs from 3:00 pm local
time on Saturday, the day of the wedding, to 3:30 am Sunday.
The move is aimed at paparazzi photographers who
routinely attempt to sneak exclusive pictures from the air of
events being kept under heavy security.
Chelsea Clinton, 30, is to marry investment banker
Marc Mezvinksy, 32, at a celebration attended by numerous
celebrities and her parents, former president Bill Clinton and
current Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
