I've never heard of a regulation of it being forbidden to exceed the speed of sound. It'd have to been a rule that came out last month if that is true.

Technically it is forbidden to fly at super or trans sonic speeds anywhere over the US without a waiver from the FAA.
Military bases and operational areas are granted permanent waivers so this does not apply to them.
Hope this clears up any confusion.

NO ! it is forbidden to go super sonic above land !
here in EUROPA for sur the military are forbidden to do and that's why they go to ranges in CANADA and USA to do such things because of the specious ranges they have at their disposal.
in EUROPA it is even forbidden on airshows and military airfields so where do you get the info that in the USA they can go supersonic on any USAF afb ???
