    Interesting thing just happened at my job
    there was a deep loud bang and the whole building shook

    i wonder if NYC is still there...
    or perhaps a local car accident?
    or blasting?
    ideas?

    My cousin called me with this back in 01, he was in the 2nd World Trade tower. Needless to say, I knew what the bang was and he ran like hell. He was almost down the stairs when the building was hit!! Crazy shit!!

    you will NEVER hear a sonic boom close to an air force base. it's highly illegal and against the rules to do that anywhere near civilization. it can break glass and cause major disturbances.

    Not so true. If the fighters are responding to a "threat" real or not and they need to get there like now they can and will go supersonic in flight. It has happened around here before ( madison, WI ).

    first, he said "ALWAYS". second you won't reach supersonic on takeoff. you have to be at a high altitude then go into full thrust to break the sound barrier. low flying jets with high throttle will make a lot of noise and shake stuff though.

    I'm willing to bet this was Bush's fault as well.
