An F-35 flew over the White House and downtown Washington, D.C., to mark the visit of Polish President Andrzej Duda on Wednesday. The United States and Poland also recently reached an agreement to sell the aircraft to the Eastern European country.

“In honor of today’s visit by President Duda of the Republic of Poland, two F-35 Joint Strike Fighter aircraft will conduct a brief flyover above the White House this afternoon,” confirmed White House Deputy Press Secretary Hogan Gidley in a statement. “We appreciate Poland’s plan to purchase this exceptional aircraft and welcome the opportunity for DOD demonstration pilots to showcase the F-35 while logging required training hours.”
