    From Deerfield Beach to Jupiter, Twitter users posted about spotting F-15 jets, which were supposed to be flying 3,500 feet off the ground. 

    The twin-engine fighter planes are able to soar at more than 1,900 mph, or 2½ times the speed of sound.

    But after Hawaii’s false alarm missile crisis and the test tsunami alert that swept the Atlantic and Gulf coasts, people seemed confused. 

    A large portion of the tweets were users questioning why the jets were out there, and no one was really marveling at their beauty.
