Interesting if a B model. (Not that I am doubting you.) As I see it, two possibiliites:

Nothing secret, but the A is configured for VIP transport, while the B apparently has more of an airliner configuration. This would suggest that this wasn't some VIP on a fact-finding trip, but rather a large delegation from the east coast.

OR, the B was doing what it was designed to do, transporting Foreign Emergency Support Teams and other covert support activities, for some related exercise at or around the TTR. That would also explain why there was no radio traffic. The departure from Oceana may lend more support to this. Make them load up the aircraft, spend a couple hours in flight, and then land and they do what they are supposed to do.
