    So, is there anyone on here that heard the sonic boom yesterday?! Here's the story of how it happened: http://www.thisisbath.co.uk/Fighter-...ail/story.html

    We stood watching the whole thing, the sound of the jet was absolutely phenomenal - the sort of sound that gets right in your chest, i love it!!

    i didn't hear it, quite unusual to hear it over land! they reported that it was because of a helicopter sending out a distress call accidently, cynically i think it may have had something to do with North Korea playing about with missiles!! actually looking on the bbc news site again it was the wrong timing so maybe they are telling the truth LOL

    There was definately a helicopter, we saw it - wondered what on earth had happened as the jet was just circling it, cant imagine how the pilot felt seeing and hearing that going around him!!

    I couldn't hear the boom on the video, but the way that jet was moving it must have been loud.

    oh the Typhoons are mega loud John, they are based just up the road from us, luckily they don't fly over often but when they do. Wouldn't want to live near when they're night flying!
