The fighter jets residents reported in the skies above Issaquah and Sammamish on Sept. 18 conducted a flyover at Husky Stadium before the Washington-Nebraska football game.

Residents spotted the aircraft, a pair of Boeing EA-18G Growlers based at Naval Air Station Whidbey Island, above the Eastside at about the same time as the 12:30 p.m. kickoff.

Kim Martin, a Navy spokeswoman at the air station, said the aircraft serve as part of VAQ-129, a training squadron based at Whidbey Island.
