    I know what a SR-71 looks like and sounds like. In the 2nd part, I was talking about seeing a sonic boom over San Francisco Bay. I guess I should've been more clear.

    Sort of a common occurrence here in Coventry, we just had two Navy jets fly over the house yesterday and one of them opened the throttles heading back toward Hartford

    Heard the fighter jets kick in afterburners and break the sound barrier here over NE Kansas City when President George W. Bush visited the area about 3 months after 9-11. They flew a circle over him the whole time he was out of the car. Also live about 60 air miles from Whiteman Air Force Base. They fly over a couple of times a day, occasionally they fire them up, and make a boom.

    Use to hear sonic booms frequently back in the seventies but not really since unless you count rifle shooting then ive heard it a lot.
