Hmmmm...I could understand a confusion with an F-16 and an F/A-18E/F, but an F-15? How could you assess that the craft that flew over the condo were F/A-18's, but you couldn't assess in the car? If you didn't see them, they could be anything!
Okay, I'm done picking.
You live in an area near a production facility for starters...not only that, but several airforce bases, and a gunnery range. Training has likely started in that region. What? Did you think all of it was Red Flag?
Not sure how they're "weird aircraft", they're perfectly normally to me!
The aircraft are likely armed, but are weapons safe. I believe it's against military law for them to fly over a populated area with weapons unlocked. So while it may have been loaded, I doubt it was "armed". Altitude assumption, that's something that makes me laugh to this day...200 feet? At 200 feet, the plane is prone to slam into a building, I doubt they touched that low unless they were preparing to land.
