Again don't think it is thunder. Blue skys in the midlands. Still not sure what it is. People saying sonic bomb and leamington cement explosion. But nothing is confirmed yet. BBC News apparently mentioned the MOD are looking into an explosion sound hear in the midlands.

Is this a new cover up??? Here take a read




Birmingham Airport dismissed suggestions the sound could have been caused by a sonic boom as a plane came in to land.


Sonic boom's only have a lateral spread of 30miles, This has been heard way beyond 30 miles. The plane is also just landing just so how is this possible don't you have to be reaching a certain speed to break the barrier?

I don't recall there being a cement factory in Leamington. I know there's one in Rugby though.

Doubt it Dave, they would know if it was a 6.6, there would be more than reports of a bang.

REALLY ??

Do they make that sort of comotion and Air disturbance over such a large area ??

My knowledge of aircraft suggests that's a bit ambitious........ to blame 2 Typhoons......... Surely this would have occureed before UNLESS they were getting a 'Wiggle on' to intercept something else ???

Could very well have been a couple of RAF jocks dropping too low over the west midlands whilst at mach #1, that would have definitely made some windows rattle across the region...or at least that will be the official "hush it up quick" coming out from the MOD within the next 24hrs.
