It they're old planes, it might be for the big airshow in Oshkosh which starts on the 29th. Owners might be staging them there.

They were looking for Paul, he has donated enough money to McHenry County and Bull Valley that they now can afford to rent planes to track his speed...

Then they just show up at his house with the ticket

I am in vacationing Arizona near Luke airforce base(LAB). I've heard there have been several F-16 crashes here and that all F-16 were grounded due to a defective engine part that was being replaced on all LAB F-16's. They have been alot of activity here due to test drives of the fixed aircraft. I would think a defective part would get replaced in all aircraft around the world and that might be the extra activity you are seeing....
