Is that the same as the video.

sounds like a 747 with engine on waiting for clearance to take off, either that or its just taxing on the runway. i fish right next to an airport and the noise sounds identical. air being force through a funnel would explain the rumbling.

and you'd still have to explain what a NASA rocketship would be doing at Tallahassee Regional Airport

I know exactly, cause it happens all the time around here in Central FLA. It is the city or county burning off or testing the gas pipelines. It scared the hell out of me the first time cause it is damn loud. There has to be a shutoff or leak detector sump within 5-6 miles for it to be that loud but I guarantee that is it.!

I live in Tallahassee, and I have a lot of friends and family in Woodville, Crawfordville area, and I haven't heard a thing about this occurence. I have been hesitant to comment, because it is a good thread, and I thought perhaps I was just out of the loop, but I have asked around, and I can't find anyone in this area that actually experienced what is being claimed.
I can say that my office sits on the approach to Tallahassee Regional Airport, and we house a few T1 flight trainers for the Coast Guard and Air Force ROTC. The past few weeks they have been flyine, and there have also been some Chinook helicopters in the area. Perhaps the rumbling was one of these things. I also know at my house, I get a rumbling everynight from a passing freight train about 6 miles in the distance, but it still rumbles my house, so perhaps it is something like a freight train.
I don't want to derail or debunk, but I want to report that nobody I have spoken to in this area actually experienced what is being claimed.
A utility company representative apologized, saying the test is conducted infrequently but is necessary to ensure the integrity of the pipeline.
The same night, Maggie Wilson, a consultant with the Tampa Palms Community Development District, recorded a reading of about 110 decibels near the construction site, she said.
The high-pitch sound began about 4:30 p.m. March 4 and continued nonstop until about 11:30 p.m., Page said. Similar tests were conducted March 5 and 8, but the noisy periods were shorter.
"If it (the high-pitch sound) went that late, we apologize," he said of the March 4 incident.
