Jets Escorting Jetliner Over Blue Bell, Conshohocken and Lafayette Hill Explained

Earlier today we reported on the numerous people posting on social media about four fighter jets spotted escorting a jetliner over Blue Bell, Conshohocken and Lafayette Hill. CBS3 was told by the FAA that it was a “military operation,” but military officials in New Jersey clarified that further saying that the planes were Saudi Arabian military aircraft that had been part of a training exercise.

From CBS3:

A Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst spokeswoman says they were four fighter jets and a refueling tanker.

She says they were making a planned stop at the base after military exercises at Nellis Air Force Base in Nevada.
