It was a flyover to demonstrate stealth F-35s for Trump and the President of Poland. Poland is buying some. I also wonder if the military planned the flyover to show Trump that the stealth fighters are not invisible, so that he stops saying that.

Thanks to all who emailed/messaged. Apparently I picked an inopportune time for a quick walkabout. All is well!!
BTW, this is the B variant of the F-35, which is particularly suited to make a loud noise over DC for a long time. That’s because it has a horizontal lift fan that allows it to land vertically, like a helicopter — or fly slowly and noisily over a city.
