What exactly was it doing there? Was there word of some kind of military exercise today?

Loud and Slow, don't usually go together. Also, I have never heard any of these fighters or bombers before I saw them? Not discounting your experience, and I love the pics, but I lived at Eglin, and Hurlburt Field, spent time at Pensacola NAS, and I am a pilot (not military), and I can't think of any possible scenario that would have a B-1 low and slow, and also at high power setting? B-1s do their business at high altitude and high speed, so training in a canyon or valley doesn't seem normal.
