BOSTON (CBS) – Fighter jets were seen flying over parts of Plymouth County Wednesday morning, prompting several calls from people wondering what was going on.

It was just a drill.

FAA spokeswoman Arlene Salac told WBZ NewsRadio 1030 and WBZ-TV the flights were a military exercise out of Barnes Air National Guard Base in Westfield. It began around 10 a.m.

Several people called both stations and local police stations wondering why F-15 jets were flying over towns like Middleboro and Plymouth.

One person posted video of a jet over Middleboro on YouTube.
