Nope.  I live in the downtown area of Atlanta.  Absolutely no flyovers of a tanker would ever be permitted.  The most we ever see are the occasional fighter jet or troop helicopters but they are confined to fly along the interstate corridor and away from the buildings.  The military installations are at least 30 miles away.  The digi I can hear is only 50 watts, 70 feet in the air (10 feet above the roof of a 5 story building), and about a quarter mile away.

The only other government buildings anywhere close are the State Capitol and the Federal Reserve.
