Military jets flew low above South Florida Wednesday morning, and while it was just a drill, many people were a bit concerned.
From Deerfield Beach to Jupiter, Twitter users posted about spotting F-15 jets, which were supposed to be flying 3,500 feet off the ground.

Their morning maneuvers in South Florida were related to patrols for when President Donald Trump spends the weekend in Palm Beach.

I just saw two fighter jets fly by. I hope that was us.— Mikel (@mjbdiver) February 14, 2018
A large portion of the tweets were users questioning why the jets were out there, and no one was really marveling at their beauty.

Nothing will make you jump out of your office chair quicker than hearing 3 fighter jets zoom past your window at ridiculous speeds. #ihopeitsjustpractice #DAYTONA500 #pepperneedsnewshorts pic.twitter.com/D8rckVEQ1f— Kalyn Lengieza 👩🏼💻🌴 (@Just_Ducky) February 14, 2018
