I'm assuming it was a fly-over for Arlington Cemetery.
A friend of mine who saw it from his office window(14th
floor) said it was in a V shaped formation with one missing
jet... He said they were F16s.

If you are talking about the CONR site at Tyndall any info of importance is on the classified SIPRNET section and not the public section, therefor everything listed is not the final answer to any scrambles. I know of several incidents not reported by SEADS and CONR until weeks after they happened.

There was a scramble in the DCA area on the 21st about 1pm for an aircraft with no radio comms, but scrambles are in 2-ship formations, not 3.
Atlantic City NJ also scrambled around 2pm for a different aircraft who filed a flight plan from Bangor ME to Chesapeake VA, flew right thru a TFR, where he was met by the local police at the end of his flight.
Good judgement comes from experience. Experience comes from surviving bad judgement.
