The U.S Airforce as we all know is always ahead in latest war
..And all the things that I believed were true
Were never roots to anything but lies
To demons in disguise
And all the roads that I've been strolling down
Now I've found they all seem to be marooned
So profoundly doomed..
But there is a problem with that theory, too.
A sonic boom is a large shock wave created by an aircraft that exceeds the speed of sound, about 761 mph. Since the retirement of the supersonic Concord, no civilian aircraft has been capable of reaching that speed, said Kathleen Bergen, a spokeswoman for the Federal Aviation Administration.
"Only military planes make sonic booms," she told the AJC Saturday afternoon.
Bergen checked with radar installations in the area at the request of the AJC and confirmed that there were no logs of military flights around the time of the boom Friday night. And there shouldn't have been, anyway.
Military planes are only supposed to fly fast in designated zones, Bergen said, and there are none in that part of Georgia.
