I think the denser atmosphere at low altitudes would rip the plane to shreds. I could be wrong about that though.

SR-71 used as a weapon...
More specifically has anyone heard of it being used or tested as a weapon by the means of LOW altitude flight and HIGH speed? Heck, any aircraft, not just the SR-71?
I was thinking what would a pass over a building in such a manner? Would it cause any damage? or would the occupants just wonder what the heck was that, an earthquake?
Sorry if I missed a thread on this already or if I posted in the wrong area, please move of delete if necessary.
