Boeing fighter jet causes sonic boom

Did you hear the loud ‘boom’ this morning? What sounded like an explosion was heard all across Mid – Missouri. Boeing now confirms that a F/A – 18 fighter jet from their Lambert Airport complex broke the sound barrier over the area, creating the sonic boom. The sound was loud enough to rattle windows as far away as Vienna.

  1. Yes, I heard it and felt the big boom shake the house windows at about 10 AM. Just like the good old days of Air Power in the skies over Mid Missouri in the 80s long before the Top Gun movie. Thanks for the info!
