Fighter jets over PBIA?

Post by N4KVE » Fri May 20, 2016 6:51 pm

About 5:45 PM tonight, I was driving east bound on Okeechobee & noticed 3 fighter jets in close formation just north of the airport. They separated, & appeared to land at PBIA. Anyone else notice this. Reminds me when the Blue Angels used to practice over Ft. Lauderdale the week before the air show. GARY

Hey, at least it wasn't black helicopters... [smilie=011.gif]

Seriously, though...are you sure it wasn't the Breitling Jet Team? They were here (FLL) a coupla weeks ago.

F-14? Then it wasn't our military. They're retired, unless National Guard still uses 'em.

They've been known to come into various airports to refuel.
