B-1's flying over Fairfax VA

Just saw two B-1’s fly over at about 7,000 - 8,000 feet in Fairfax County, VA outside DC. They made a turnaround and headed out west and were originally would have been coming from the DC / Arlington area.

Anyone know what could have been going on in the DC area that might have used a flyover?

Probably fly over Arlington national cemetary,when they have burials and special ceremonies,they use an aircraft that the person is associated such as type flown or worked on as well.

Yep, you are right. It ended up being for this https://youtu.be/qSswIyIubn8
