Sonic boom Rattles Portland to Seattle

Today about 1:45 pm two F-15s Scramble to hit seattle air space as it was breached by a float plane while the President was in this area.

They took off from Portland & hit seattle 8 mins later causing sonic booms through out the whole area

Those jets are just badass! I work near the airport and see and hear them going by when they fly in my direction. They dont have sound sanctions like commercial planes.

8 Mins.! isnt that normally an hour flight commercially ?

Good reminder not to fly around when the President is in town. That would put a hitch in your giddy up for sure!

That is just a press cover up, as they had to explain the sonic boom.

It was the Aurora Spy Plane that caused that. It was having flight trouble and the other two were there to blow it out of the sky if it was going to crash in population. The sonic boom happened when it regained control and sped off.

Yeah good thing they where up high enough when they did it. When I lived in Manhattan, Kansas they where having war games at Fort Riley near by. 4 F-16's came in for a low level attack at supersonic speeds and had been accidentally flight pathed to close and low to Junction City which is right near Fort Riley, over 5000 windows got broken out due to how low they where from the sonic boom.

This seems to be "above top secret" material here

That would be pretty scary to hear that without warning and wonder if something really bad is happening! I know I'd be wondering if we were under attack or something! That video of the mom taping the girl in the pool when the booms came by was neat though. That poor girl didn't know what to think!

We have those scary moments out here all the time. quiet often there will be a giant passanger jet so close to the ground I could hit it with a rock and all I can do is wait to hear either the oil refinery or coal power plant blowing up.
As they have no business being so low with no airport even close to us.
I always hold my breath; wait and listen.


Though best thing ever was soon after 911 a fighter jet flew over LOW LOW and he tipped his wings at me when I looked up.

I can see how it would be scary if you have never heard it before, but every time I hear a sonic boom now, it's like music to my ears

BTW: F15's =
