Sonic BOOM!

Did anyone witness this ?

Apparently one of the F/A 18 Hornets broke the Supersonic barrier on a live mission.

I seemed to have missed the drama

In Geneva, the only Boom we hear is that of the canons in the vineyards to keep birds at bay!

Champagne for breakfast and at 10.30 in the morning, top marks for decadence

Heard it here too - thank goodness there's an explanation - thought the neighbours would blame it on me (was already trying to figure out which neighbour I could blame it on...)

Re: Sonic BOOM!

My son phoned to ask if I had felt an earthquake, (had not, was on an S-Bahn) but I tokd him to check Swiss Seismological Service website for any updates. None that would be relevant - it must have been the Sonic BOOM!

Very odd, same thing here in Eglisau at about the same time. If the source was the same it must have been one hell of a bang.

Sonic boom. Typical, but fairly close. Hornets playing in the skies.

Thank your tax francs that we're being looked after.
