I would of though a sonic boom would travel in a 360 degree pattern?

If so, I myself should of heard it in Lichfield, but me and everyone else hear hasn't heard anything :/

I think you might have provided the 'evidence' to satisfy the people...

Anyone who heard 'the noise' agree this is it ??

If they were flying from a Lincolnshire Air Base and the Helicopter they were intercepting was down towards the SW area of the UK then the Sonic Boom / Wave would move in the general direction of the aircraft travel I guess and would therefore cover a larger area.......

Is that right ?? I'm no expert....

I think you are right. This is the reason why concorde wasn't actually allowed to fly at supersonic on land because of the boom. I think also that the higher up you are, the broader the area the sound would transmit to. It trails behind the aircraft like a massive cone, reaching the ground.

There is a mobile phone video on BBC TV news, which oddly shows a whilte flash across the sky at the same time as the boom if anyone is able to upload it. It was heard from Warwickshire to Oxfordshire, Wiltshire and Somerset, these counties aren't all in close proximity and all heard at the same time, over hundreds of miles. There are air shows here every year and with typhoons flying with sonic booms and it has never caused a fuss in even near counties.

exactly, from West Midlands to Oxfordshire, Wiltshire and Somerset, I am on the border of the latter 3 and heard it, I hear sonic booms often and there were never any reports of sonic booms here being heard that far.

Hello ATS - this is my first post and i joined (having been a lurker for a year) today to post about this 'sonic boom' I live in Swindon and my daughter and i heard it in the kitchen, then my mum and husband phoned me to say they had heard it too (my husband said his whole building shook).

I know from looking at the news sites that they are saying that it was a sonic boom caused by a Typhoon aircraft but i didn't know it was possible to hear a sonic boom in such a wide area or radius - i have had friends on the N Devon border on Facebook saying they heard it too?

Sorry i have not read the thread yet - will go back and read it now but just wanted to post my first post and say it was very loud and i have never heard anything like it before.

I wonder... this noise seems to have been heard in places that are like 200 miles apart... is that actually possible?

Maybe it's just all hype... I dunno.

Regarding how far the boom travels, parents lived in Bournemouth and they sometimes heard Concorde going supersonic out over the Atlantic. Must have been a good 200 miles away.

Somerset, Oxfordshie, etc etc are not that far apart, and they are in a north south line. so something in Oxfordshire might well be heard in those counties.

However in Wales I never heard anything, except the guy down the road putting a room in his loft.
