I am requesting an answer to the confusion surrounding the rumble/trembling sounds heard throughout Aberdeenshire on the 21st/22nd of May 2012.
I witnessed this sound at approximately 2245 and contacted the non emergency police line as others on my street also heard it and i was curious to find out if it was an incident. I was duly informed that many people heard this sound ranging a distance of around 50-100 miles. What confuses me about this incident is that it seems to be unimportant in the MoD's eyes.
If it were a supersonic jet creating a sonic boom, why did it occur 3 times on the 22/5/12 between 2000 and 2245 and why did it occur the night before on the 21/5/12? Not only that but jets are not allowed to fly at supersonic speeds in UK airspace without authorisation. This authorisation must come from the MoD, yet in the local media it stresses that the MoD say "it is likely"...well either it is or it isn't.
This is concerning on 2 fronts... 1. The MoD know if it was or wasn't a supersonic jet doing multiple sonic fly bys yet deny knowledge, which is concerning because they are only allowed to do it for special reasons...why were the RAF/Navy doing it if they were and where were they racing at supersonic speeds too? 2. If it was not a supersonic jet (multiple times), or an earth quake (multiple times), then why is it not being investigated? You would think that an unknown sound disturbing a large area on multiple occasions without any natural explanation would raise security concerns within the UK's MoD.
I would appreciate it if the matter could be clarified or will i and others be reporting back with another case of a "mysterious sound" tonight?
