3. They need to burn all their jet fuel by the end of the year, or else they get less next year.

Sometimes, they even dump "extra" fuel as they fly over the ocean.

4. You're an idiot. Fighter jets don't fly over DC without a specific reason. nt

6. Directly over DC? In the no-fly zone?
Edited on Tue Nov-10-09 11:19 AM by Ian David
You said "Bethesda/Chevy Chase MD" which is kind of non-specific.

8. Are you new to the neighborhood?
I live less than 10 miles from BCC and hear them all the time. Go out late tonight and listen very carefully.

9. Late at night is routine. The middle of the day is not.
I've lived here 14 years.

13. Umm, they're there all the time, you just can't hear them as well during the day.
Do you think there are stars in the sky during the day even when you can't see them?

BTW, I've been in the area since 1968.

21. It's kinda funny how many people are chuckling at you.
Fortunately, we've been kind enough not to call YOU an idiot.

Just saying.

I wonder what it means when absolutely nobody takes you seriously, though?

12. Could be a Veterans Day rehearsal
Edited on Tue Nov-10-09 11:33 AM by rocktivity
Ii was exactly a year ago when a DUer in New Jersey posted the same thing--turned out to be a rehearsal for a flyover during halftime at the Giants football game.

15. I saw the choppers going to Camp David the other day too. Wassup, I wonder?
I live about 10 miles from there, in the flight path from D.C. At the time Netanyahu was in the news, and I wondered if some unofficial meeting was up about that?

Could be it's just a vacation coming up, but now that you say this... Maybe there's more to it?

16. Something unrelated
KOMU-TV: SWAT team, SWAT tanker and at least 50 police vehicles outside Jefferson City office building where hostage situation is unfolding.
Missouri Lt. Governor Kinder says a hostage situation is unfolding in the Governor Office Building.

There was another incident this morning - is the country going mad?
