The aircraft, part of the 127 Fighter Squadron based at Selfridge, near Mount Clemens, were on their way back from a training mission in Ohio, said Penny Carroll, public affairs officer for Selfridge.
The planes tend to fly low and slower than some other military aircraft, making them particularly noticeable to civilians, Carroll said.
Military aircraft will also be in the sky in the Metro Detroit area this weekend as part of the hydroplane races taking place there, Carroll said. Those are F/A-18 fighter jets.
