That's part of the reasion the PA is taking over.
I'd want the bricks for free, but I wouldn't expect them. Materials prices are like the commodities market. Timing is a gamble. The supplier always risks having to deliver them for less than he paid for them, and the buyer makes his best guess as to when to buy.
If the PA has the legal option of backing out of the deal, then they should. But not because it's "fair". But because that's the way the deal was written.

LOL, dude you were WAY off. The Statue of Liberty (including the base) is only about 305 feet tall. Air Force One is about 230 feet long, nose to tail. Now, does this scaling seem accurate? Otherwise cool pic, it'll be interesting to see how the real ones turned out.

Yesterday, they decided to do an Air Force One photo shoot over New York City, in the middle of the day, without telling anyone. Wait, they did tell the city and state it was going to happen, but they were told to keep the whole thing a secret, and refer questions to the FAA.

About the height of Flight 11. I probably would have been concerned if I lived in NY. That being said, the federal government can and has proved time and time again that they will do whatever they please.

I'm betting a few people either lost their jobs or were demoted over this. Saw on the news many people running from buildings. Unknown exactly what they were told or why to evacuate. Not many people would recognize AF1.

No, simply the routes of the Air Force One as well as the Air Force Two are ALWAYS secret, no matter what (for obvious reasons of security). Even in this case, since even though the president was not on board, demonstrative attacks could have been possible, given the symbolic (and economic) importance of the airplane.
