This is starting to get a bit interesting, like i suspected flying over mach 1 over populated areas is illegal and the pilot may even be thrown out of the military.

If he is not punished then theres way more to this.

The last time a pilot went over mach 1 he smashed all the green houses on the island of jersey and the RAF had to pay some 1 million in damages - not to mention the straight up spooking of everyone effected at the time.

I asked my father who has 26 years in the RAF behind him what would cause a typhoon to deliberately go over mach 1 (esp since they were a pair) he told me it would have to be something extremely vital, or simply straight up pilot error.

So yes... if it was in fact a supersonic jet, then the reasons why it would be going that fast would have to be pretty damned important, and certainly more interesting than the actual boom.

According to the MOD the typhoon jets were authorised to go supersonic due to the civilian pilot accidently sending out an emergency signal which could have been a hijacking.

The Typhoons were from the Quick Reaction Alert (QRA), based at RAF Conningsby in Lincolnshire

Exactly, there are reports of London Air Traffic requesting RAF QRA and the pilot being given the ok for Mach 1.2.

Firstly civilian aircraft errors aren't rare and any 'hijacking frequency' transmits are treated with the suspicion they deserve, just like any emergency response team on the ground, there are questions and procedures before sending in the big guys.

Secondly, how come there aren't everyday reports from QRA Typhoon response booms or even from their training exercises? This 'boom' trail covered a vast area for something as absurd as a helicopter pilot error. There HAS to be more to the story. Perhaps if they said they had hijacked someone of major importance or if there were multiple sightings of flying things or something else of national security risk it would be more plausible.

The Quick Reaction Alert (QRA) crews were scrambled after a civilian helicopter emitted an emergency signal in the Oxford area.




Meanwhile, residents around Bath and Swindon reported seeing the fighter jets performing manoeuvres in the skies overhead.

A couple years ago Mr. Obama was in Washington State and a civilian plane broke the no fly zone. This resulted in 2 Jets being deployed out of Orgeon. When they went Mach Level everyone here heard a loud explosion.

I myself was working in my office at home and my first thought was a truck had hit the side of the house. After I went outside and saw then neighbors looking around I realized it was something else. My second thought was the Sonic Boom from jets as I had heard and felt them before.

What was funny is how many people speculated what it was. People got on facebook and claimed a gas line blew up while other said it was an earthquake. It wasn't until a fe hours later that the news posted what happened.

I'm from Coventry and heard this. Felt like something smashing into my house. I was with my dad and brother and we've seen Typhoons boom before at airshows and all immediately thought it was that. However my step-dad is a fireman in Warks and he got called out to go looking around Leamington for an explosion.

Anyway, that's not my point. I was on a bus between 5.30 and 5.35 in Coventry city centre and heard/felt the same kinda thing. It felt like the bus got slammed from the side and made an almighty noise. Knowing the area of Coventry, it was probably someone throwing a brick but the people outside didn't look the sort; I might have just missed them. I wouldn't have thought twice about it if it wasn't for this a hour later. Got no supporting evidence, sorry.

The chasing something sounds more likely. If it was even a sonic boom at all. The light flash from the realtime video a guy who was filming the weather is something I would like to see. I was maybe channel 4 news or bbc, isn't on youtube ...yet.


Escorting is more like it. I had this same thing happen a few years ago on the West Coast of Florida!! We get the space shuttle flying directly over us when it comes back to Kennedy and that is the loudest sonic boom I have ever heard till one night.

One night I was talking to a friend who live a half hour north of me and then two massive booms rocked my house so bad I thought the sliding glass doors were going to jump out of their tracks and break. I said what the hell? My friend said what and then holy shat as it hit him. I turned on the TV to see the news and they quickly came on saying people as far as Crystal River and north have called in to see if we had an earthquake.

Not to long and McDill AFB 30 miles or more to the south of me came on and claimed it was two Navy F-18s flying in from the south that made all that noise witch is impossible. They had a video of them flying over Sarasota and they were not flying fast.

By the end of the night people over a hundred miles from me to the north had called into the news station. I am sorry but if the planes came in and landed 30 miles to the south of me that could never happen.

The only conclusion is, we have a real bad ass plane they had probably been testing or making a run over Cuba and then used the F-18s as a cover story. What ever it was (Auroa) flew right up the west coast of Florida and probably landed at Elgin AFB in the Panhandle. They have a very long runway and it is hidden by lots of trees from the hi-way. They had row after row of F-111's there one day I drove by in the late 80's.

That was the loudest set of sonic booms I have ever heard or felt as it shook the ground and the whole house.

Damn it! Thanks to me working nights I slept through this. I live in Leicester, not far at all from Coventry. I'm interested, so will look forward to reading through the thread in its entirety

Why is this in Skunk Works? It actually happened and has been widely reported in the media. The MOD also explained what it was.

The sound was loud, but not deafening. It reverberated between the houses in my street. I didn't see the jet and actually didn't look for one as I only caught the sound bouncing between houses, so thought that it was quite low down and didn't look up. That's a shame because it would have been nice to see a jet going at mach 1.2 for future reference.

At first it sounded like a very large explosion, but it also had a muffled thud which didn't sound right for an explosion.

I feel privileged hearing a sonic boom. My guess is not so many people hear them, and very few in civilian areas.

As for the people who think sonic booms cannot be heard over a wide area, they really need to learn some physics. Look up mach cone.

Hmm..not sure if this is related or not...same time of occurrence, different time zones..

Sonic Boom, Jet prompts Hundreds of Questions

From the above link



COLUMBUS, Ohio - A loud noise heard near Delaware and Marion counties concerned many residents Thursday evening. 10TV News received reports that residents in Hilliard, Galloway, Westerville and Canal Winchester also heard the sound. According to the Delaware County Sheriff’s Office, a low-flying jet broke the sound barrier and created a sonic boom.

04/12 has been a strange day. Maybe there's a connection between those fighter and this ;



A state trooper and a motorist reported a large object falling out of the sky in Litchfield, Conn. -- a green, glowing, whale-sized object that plunged into Litchfield Lake. State authorities said no go; they failed to locate anything mysterious. Read more: www.foxnews.com...

I live in good old Wolverhampton lol I didn't hear anything, strange as if people in Oxfordshire are reporting the noise which is further away
. Never realised there were so many UK members of ats
, I always wonder who could be a member of ats when im out and about.

Just listening to BBC News while working (yes I know its 07.33 but I have a Masters to do!) and they reported that the 'loud noises' have been revealed by the RAF as TWO Typhoon fighter jets answering a distress call to a helicopter - interestingly the presenter then said 'we will be discussing this later'. Ok so I'll be listening 'later' too!

PS I was in North Devon yesterday but was driving so with my musak up far too loud it would take more than a 'boom' to alert me

I used to work as a disability support worker. The house I was working in on the night I bring up now, was a very long brick one story house. The house had 15 bedrooms, two of which where fully self contained, kitchen, bathroom and one with an office. Also there was a massive lounge and dining and two, 4 shower, 4 toilet bathrooms. So as you can imagine it was a big sturdy building. Well now that the mood is set
I was woken up at around three in the morning by a massive thunder clap that shook the whole building and it lasted for about 30-40 sec, non stop, maybe longer. It was very, very loud. This could be an explanation...? Oh, I should mention I live in SE QLD Australia

Can you find out how far the noise of a sonic boom should travel as i am from swindon and that is 71 miles from coventry and in heard the noise and several reliable people also told me that there windows shock with the force of it. It happened around 18:30 in swindon

If you are from different locations can you put a rough time that this happened on to see if there is any posible flight path?

If there is a logical explination im happy to accept it however No body that i have spoken to saw anything in the sky
And it seems like such a vast area of england heard the sound

Seems a bit strange to me

North Korea attempted to launch a rocket into orbit yesterday. The news says that it failed. Any thoughts about allied mid flight interception and destruction by our rockets? That would make a fcuking big bang wouldn't it?

I'm thinking that something doesnt add up. People have reported hearing the bang/boom as far north as Yorkshire and as far south as Bournemouth!!

Thoughts?

*ignor - they launched way after the bangs*

I heard the big bang. Scared the crap outta me lol. Im from the oxfordshire area. I think the offical story is Bs. The offical statement came out way too quick -.- . Think there is more to this than their letting on. House shook and windows rattled for a second or two.. weird

Possible EQ?
