The White House said the flyover partly recognizes Poland's decision to acquire F-35s of its own, a long-sought-after purchase so that Warsaw could replace aging Soviet-era planes.

Trump said that Poland had agreed to purchase "32 or 35 brand new F-35s at the highest level." He later said the number was 32.
