Can you provide a link to your source please? Nothing on the BBC news site yet.

Please don't take offence either, this isn't one of those, "I don't believe you, where's your proof, pics or it didn't happen" requests, I honestly want to read up on it

I'm just going by Coventry local radio. Apparently they were scrambled (QRA??) because a helicopter pressed an emergency button. I have no idea what that means. It all seems a bit odd to me.

Apparently, 2 typhoons reasonding to an emergency signal from a helicopter indicating it had been hyjacked. This was then established as a false alarm. But they must of had to get a "wiggle on" as you so rightly put it.

I certainly wouldn't believe that, I attend airshows al the time and live near air bases, I know the sound of sonic booms and they wouldn't be heard in Coventry, Somerset, Oxfordshire and Warwickshire at the same time....these planes are around often enough to know the sound and we would all be used to it....

Does anyone have a video or sound recording of the sound? With so many people reporting it hopefully something will come out. These "sounds" are becoming pretty common around the world. The fact this is happening on every continent and none of our governments are saying anything has me really concerned. They must know something is up or even worse have no idea what it is. One thing for sure is it is REAL and it is HAPPENING world wide!!!!!

Here's some info...interesting ......

Sonic Booms.....

Perception and noise

The sound of a sonic boom depends largely on the distance between the observer and the aircraft shape producing the sonic boom. A sonic boom is usually heard as a deep double "boom" as the aircraft is usually some distance away. However, as those who have witnessed landings of space shuttles have heard, when the aircraft is nearby the sonic boom is a sharper "bang" or "crack". The sound is much like the "aerial bombs" used at firework displays. It is a common misconception that only "one" boom is generated during the subsonic to supersonic transition, rather, the boom is continuous along the boom carpet for the entire supersonic flight. As a former Concorde pilot puts it, "You don't actually hear anything on board. All we see is the pressure wave moving down the aeroplane - it gives an indication on the instruments. And that's what we see around Mach 1. But we don't hear the sonic boom or anything like that. That's rather like the wake of ship - it's behind us.".[4]

Lincolnshire, and are recently being ''canibalised' for parts to enable an active fleet....so possibly thin on the ground.

Depends how far the aircraft travelled, I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure the "sonic boom" is present the whole time the aircraft is supersonic.

Edit: I wrote this before your last post, lol, good searching.

I am used to hearing sonic booms but this didn't feel like it, I am pretty sensitive and would recognise it. The floor walls sort of shook.

Hey all, I heard military jets go over my house not sure what time it was though, maybe around 5pm BST.
I live in east yorkshire if that helps.

Edit [ Didn't sound like they where hitting the sound barrier,when they went over. Also im on the opposite side of the Humber Estuary to Lincolnshire where theres a base i think.]

I believe your correct. The sonic boom follows the aircraft while it is supersonic.

I live just outside Coventry and didn't hear this :-(. I was too busy playing warcraft! Strange how people as far as Oxfordshire have heard this! It's also on the bbc site. I only found out about this from my friends on facebook.
