    Default Did anyone hear the sonic boom last night?

    Apparently two fighter jets were scrambled from Lincolnshire to intercept an "unresponsive" plane flying over southeast England. They were allowed to fly at supersonic speed, and thousands of people heard a sonic boom at around 4:20am.

    It appears the plane was a passenger jet flying from Israel to the USA, but developed radio problems over Germany. It was not carrying passengers but was being flown from a seller to a buyer of the aeroplane.

    The pilot "nearly had a heart attack" when he saw the fighters.

    It looks like I was nearly at the centre of the boom, but I didn't hear a thing.

    It does show the level of concern about terrorism and a possible second 9/11 attack.

    Just standard procedure for an unresponsive airliner or Russian aircraft approaching our airspace.
