Some of the responses are creative, but if you are going to assume aliens built their craft for no sonic boom in our atmosphere (because it would not be the same for their atmosphere), then you must ask yourself, why.
If these aliens went through all this trouble to travel vast distances to visit Earth. Made if so they can operate in our atmosphere. Design the propulsion system to work as well, and make sure no sonic boom is created for some reason (let's say for stealth), then why stop there? Why make it so we can still detect the craft?
I am not saying there isn't aliens out there, but before we can speculate on why there is no sonic boom for an UFO, shouldn't we determine what that UFO is to begin with? You can't give a good answer to a question when it is based around an unknown. UFO could be lightning balls, jets, satellite, the list goes on. Everyone says it is because "they have much more advanced tech", but yet we never see this tech, so how do we actually know this?
I guess I wouldn't want to give a real scientific answer to a question without knowing what is meant by a UFO. We just don't happen to have any alien spacecraft lying around that we can see taking off.

Exactly my point.
I think I am reading it wrong, or you misunderstood what I meant. It sounds like you meant we don't have any terrestrial crafts laying around that we can test taking off? I am sure this is just a misunderstanding.

This question was probably answered long before most of you here were born.
Leonard Cramp's Piece for a Jig-saw: UFOs and Anti-gravity Pt.1 1966 is probably the most remarkable book you could ever read on this subject.
Why do I say "could ever read"? Well, I would go as far to say, that one day soon, Cramp's books will be exposed as being "the truth hidden in plain sight" on the UFO phenomena.
You need to get the book (and his follow-up books) and you may find all your questions answered, including many you never thought about.
Some of the early UFO images inside are alone worth the price of tracking down this book. The G-Field images of craft in acceleration are astounding -and way before Photoshop days of course...
As for no sonic booms, well, the vectored G-Field extends WAY ahead of the leading edge of the craft, like a sharp knife at the edge, displacing air much more gently well in advance of the actual craft. Possibly miles ahead.
fwiw -UFO's are very real. But I don't think any UFO's are 'alien' at all, That has been a colossal ruse to distract attention away from the shy clique of separatist humans who have been refining them since the early part of the last century. The technology is THE definitive military advantage, hence the need for total cover-up until... well, the 'until' is the bit that worries me. Maybe I should ask Mr Cramp -he knows a lot you see.
"There does not exist currently any machine manufactured by the man, plane or missile, which is capable of such performances, in particular to fly at supersonic speed without making bang? ?It cannot be something creates by the man and our defense system is impotent vis-a-vis these machines"

i never thought of this before...we hear about project bluebeam being all about holograms so maybe all these ufos are holograms dontya think?
it does make sense doesnt it? ,why use real ships that can crash when you can just use light?

The one thing that really gets me is how they deal with inertia. You see how these crafts can go from 0 - 60 Miles Per Second in less than 3 seconds. Wow
