Just putting this up now in case it develops further.

Two separate. Distinct sonic booms clearly heard over my location 1945 GMT (approx) Exeter SW. Police Air Unit also operational. Will update if/as required. Anyone else got anything to add?

The first time I heard a sonic boom I was at my grandparent's house in the 1980s. I thought a bomb was going off. The whole house shook. They had to explain what a sonic boom was and why it wasn't scary. I'd like to hear another one so I'm a bit jealous of you right now. Keep us informed mate.

Last sonic booms I personally heard, were on 9-11. Previous to that....not since 1963.

Something may well, be up.

We had one in North/Central Missouri about an hour ago ourselves...

It seems we've been having about 1 per month for the last six months or so. This is extremely odd as we had not heard any for years.

Edit: Looked at the text I received from my wife when it occurred. The Sonic Boom was at 12:41 PM CST exactly. If anyone can do some digging and find out what was flying over the Macon County area at that time.

So you are in London?

The other posters are in the US?

Are you watching the Tely?

I see nothing on CNN.

Same with me. Mid 80's, in Zion, IL, far north suburb of Chicago. A very urban area and the boom went right over head. I was a child and my mom had to explain it to me as well. I've never heard it again since. I'm also jealous. It was probably not long after that that the gubment put a stop to military jets flying over populated areas.

Any update? Is there an air battle raging overhead yet?

Atypical to have aircraft going transonic over population centers unless they are above a certain altitude. I wonder what you have going on over there?

The Telegraph article has the current date at the top of the page, but the article itself is 5 years old.

Possible explanation there.

A frequent occurrence during the Roman occupation and the English Civil War, or in more recent times a visit from Plymouth Argyle.

The last time I heard sonic booms was in the mid 70s. There was an air show near my house at Selfridge ANGB.
They had like 5 F-100 Super Sabres that made low altitude passes over the base and as they were approaching the base they passed the sound barrier at probably 800-1000 ft altitude.
I was watching with my family from our back yard about 1 mile away, at the time I thought it was the greatest thing ever.
Before that, you would hear them occasionally when they had F-106 Delta Darts stationed there.
As I was growing up, it was nothing to have the 106s take off in flights of 2 in the middle of the night with full afterburner, it happened a lot. It would wake you from a dead sleep.
But I think they passed a law that said they couldn't make the sonic booms in peacetime sometime in the late 70s, if I remember right.

Hopefully everything is ok there in the U.K.

Thank you for the correction.

I also found a goofy article stating airports were shut down in the states and all flights were returning to the london area.

LOL!!

Damn fake News

All quiet here on the moor, no sounds of military training this evening or the usual flares. Curious. Maybe they chose to go supersonic sooner than they should as they headed out towards the Bristol channel?
