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.



link to video?


trying to get it from channel 4 website / bbc iplayer

Surley the only danger you could cause with a civillian helecopter would be to crash it into something and the only thing the fighter jets could do to stop it would be to blow it up and shower the surrounding area with big lumps of helecopter so why send them?

I could understand if it were a milliatary helecopter and also beleive that it had that kind of transmission but someone on here has to be a helecopter pilot or know one they can ask?

Hello again


I guess when faced with a rogue aircraft, helicopter then the only course of action is to shoot it down...because if it is destined for a 'specific target' and is possibly carrying a ''cargo'' or something more sinister thento shoot it down before it reaches a target is better even if there is a lesser amount of collaterall damage....

Typhoons are to be based at RAF Northolt during the Olympics. West of London, on the way to Oxford and Bristol, well sort of.

Looks like they might be there already and ready to go!

Kinda makes you feel safe?

Yup thats normal jet sounds, the cut out is simple the engines pointing another direction, jets were designed to be as quiet as possible, believe it or not

They have 160 of these bad boys ready to fly, though only a small handful ready at any one time in any one base.

I would expect brize norton to hold a few more than 2 though, thats a big base.

Yes I can agree in principle to that but then why would someone hijack a civillian helecopter? I cant imagine its safe to wrestle the controls from the pilot? and I Imagine there not that much to buy so any terrorist who cant afford one also proberbly doesn't have much of a bomb either.

It all sounds like a poorly thought out cover story to me but there you go.

Also I think someone said the planes came from lincolnshire? If so why not from one of wiltshires many raf bases.


Fishy fish.

How frequent are earthquakes in that vicinity?

And by ANY chance, is this on or near the same longitude as Clintonville, Wisconsin? By my guessimation, they should be generally close.

Those noises are something out of a horror film.

Just plain, weird! If not, frightening.

the jet video in Bath is jets and isn't the sound I or the people reporting booms heard, it was a VERY loud explosion sound that lasted for a few seconds and shook the floor and walls, it was startling and I am used to hearing very loud planes and sonic booms. People as far as Warwickshire said it sounded '' like a brick went through their window'', it wasn't ordinary, hence all the reports, it was EXTRAORDINARY.

Will try post video on news when get a few moments.

this wasn't the sound heard, normally with a sonic boom there are jet sounds at some point, here there weren't.

Biigs.

2? Thats more than rowing boats the Navy have...Haha!

Brize, did not think of the planes origination from there.

Is Fairford still in use by the RAF?

OK, so I can come out from under the table then and take the colander off my head and put it back on the shelf. Not letting go the white flag though, just in case.

Typhoon sonic boom behind mysterious bang reports - MoD



Aloud bang which sparked a deluge of calls to emergency services across a large part of England was a sonic boom from a Typhoon aircraft, the MoD said.

Mystified residents across the West Midlands, Warwickshire, Oxfordshire, Somerset and Wiltshire reported hearing a loud boom at about 18:10 BST.

The MoD revealed it was from a Typhoon responding to an emergency call.

Yeah i know man, I wasn't posting them because they were the same noise as the garden one... I can't find the garden one.

My mate heard the loud bang one and it rattled his house... said it sounded like an earthquake crossed with gunfire.


I only posted those vids because they're the only ones on youtube related to this incident.

If you have the garden weather man one, post it.

Earthquakes are rare in the UK of any significant size, and even rarer over M4, not everything is a conspiracy HA!

The answer given by the MoD is perfectly reasonable if you understand how sonic booms work.

So then what was the emergency?

AFAIK the typhoon fleet is based at RAF coningsby linconshire seen them there training quite a lot

There is a pair stationed at RAF Northolt NW London for the Olympics they have been seen out and about
over the last few weeks doing orientation training over London and the Thames estuary.

on the 2 vids up the page neither has sounds of a super sonic nature the first vid certainly "sounds"
like a typhoon they have a distinctive tearing noise.

the second one is the odd one why would we have typhoons over dutch airspace?
i suppose it could be sound carrying across the sea from a training op over the Thames estuary
but that's still quite a trek and again AFAIK we don't launch night flights where they could be a sound
nuisance again down to limiting a deluge of whinging to the authority's

The emergency was some daft git had pressed the help we're being hijacked button on a civilian helicopter, and given the security in place for the run up to the games, two jets were dispatched to go play.
