Just had some fighters fly by the house here, the odd thing is that its 12:15AM (woke me up), in Annapolis, MD. This has never happened before and they were pretty low and sounded like they were going slow with one or two in trail. I turned my scanner on just when I got out of bed and someone had keyed on Guard but I didn't get any voice. Anyone know whats up?

Could it be some training ops? Early this morning (1am'ish) in Chicago some F-16s were practicing intercepting maneuvers. I didn't get the whole story as I was leaving my car for work, but the morning show host on WGN radio was talking to a NORAD rep about the flights above Chicago. I have yet to find any stories on-line about this. But maybe they are related somehow?
