Default Military activity?

Did any other part of the region have a huge military aircraft presence round about lunchtime today?

Saw - and certainly HEARD - at least 16 fighters and bombers swooping low over the city, and landing at the airbase. Never happened before, and it didn't look like an exercise.

If war breaks out, could somebody PM me..........? Thanks.

It will take more than 16 of Saudi's finest to destroy that...........

I didn't imagine it though - and I wouldn't just dismiss it. Even the Saudis I work with agreed they'd never seen anything like it before.

Still, war doesn't appear to have broken out, so....... what the heck........
