PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — We’re learning more about the five planes flying in formation Monday night over the Philadelphia and South Jersey area.

A spokesperson for the FAA told KYW Newsradio on Monday that the group of jets flying in formation was a “military operation.”

We now know they were Saudi Arabian aircraft headed back home by way of Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst in Burlington County, according to officials at the base.

She says they were making a planned stop at the base after military exercises at Nellis Air Force Base in Nevada.

These type of exercises are called ‘Red Flag’ air combat training, which includes crews from the US and its allies.
