Five F-15 fighter jets from the Barnes Air National Guard Base in Westfield flew at low altitudes over several Eastern Massachusetts locations.

The exercise got off to a late start, and people who ventured outside for a look at the jets were kept waiting for nearly 30 minutes.

The Massachusetts National Guard had released a statement listing the locations:

“At approximately 8:10 a.m., five F-15 Eagle fighter jets will make low passes beginning at Hanscom Air Force Base, Salem, Boston, Fenway Park, Norwood, Gillette Stadium, Cape Cod, Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard ending at about 8:45 a.m. as part of a planned training and media mission,’’ said Lt. Col. James Sahady, spokesman for the Massachusetts National Guard.

Some people who waited for the exercise captured images of the fast-moving formation, and shared them on social media:
