    Default Typhoon sonic boom behind mysterious bang reports - MoD

    A loud bang which sparked a deluge of calls to emergency services across a large part of England was bla bla bla bla bla.......... says the British Propaganda Corporation / MOD.

    Wonder why it was called out (really) if it was another Typhoon?

    When i was a kid, i remember up until around the late 1980's, we would often have tornado jets flying regulary overhead at mach speeds and the associated booms. its been so long since i last heard them, that unless i saw the plane flying, i would probably wonder what the heck was that noise.

    I was right in the middle of that last night. 18:10 in Coventry UK, massive bang, all over facebook with my mates and family, was heard from Lincon to Cornwall. seems a bit strange that a) the sonic boom 2 jets to a mayday helecoptor, and b) its heard by such a wide spread, I'd of thought maybe 5 miles away or so but thats hundreds of miles. Also noticed that in Norfolk on Wednesday they had a simular bang.

    ¤=[Post Update]=¤

    To give you an idea of the noise. I was taking a martial arts class in a social club function room, there was bar noise from the next room and music, noise from my class and cars outside, and when it went BANG I initially thought a barmaid had dropped a create of beer bottles behind the bar which was about 12 feet from me.

    My son came downstairs last night and told me he heard a bang, at the same time a friend who lives eight miles from us said she heard a big bang while she was talking to my wife sitting next to me.

    After a short while we saw an update on the internet saying it was a controlled explosion in a cement works which was eighteen miles away! Late at night, yea right!

    Read this morning a press release saying it was a sonic boom, there loud but not that loud that my son was scared and oit friend had heard ot loudly living so far from us?

    Doesnt add up does it...

    There are many RAF bases around lincolnshire as far as i know, but its seems odd that they would scramble jets down to cornwall coz i think there are a few bases nearer, so that seems odd. Also the changing the storey from a cement works explosion is odd, can you give a link to the artical WHOMADEGOD ?
    As for hearing the same noise eight miles away, i can accomodate that, as flying at over mach speed , well, its fast, so to cover eight miles take,s just seconds.

    Weired things are going on around my area regarding the ( I think ) RAF. We are usually very quiet here and the only plane noise we get is the local air sea rescue helicopter and that police chopper every now and then, but for the last 4 days we have had a lot of helicopters doing manuvers into the early hours of the morning.

    Had a look at the base and they are crawling with millitary, usually it is almost abandoned.
    Love. peace and Blessings to you all.

    Yes It frightened the life out of me and my wife, we thought something had exploded. The mod are saying something about a helicopter called on the wrong emergency frequency, but subsequently changed to the correct frequency.
    Now this begs the question so why do they have this emergency frequency and why if someone calls on it does it merit two Tornado's scorching to the position at supersonic speed, when I know as a Pilot that is is illegal to break the sound barrier over land.

    It happened here a while ago and all the windows shook and all the shop shutters shook, it was very scary and the RAF denied it was them for ages. They said they are not allowed to do this over towns and areas where it will scare people too! I think something strange is going on with this stuff happening, it just doesn't seem right.

    I was thinking this as well....as the official explanation for the bang/boom seems a bit lame to me.

    Don't know if this is a conspiracy too far...lol...but I wonder if the Korean rocket/satellite launch was targeted by some kind of energy weapon and that the UK was in a 'harmonic' position geographically and in regards to sun/moon/planets so it somehow became involved in the energy of the energy 'weapon'...

    I'm not explaining myself very well...?....but last night I watched the video shared with us by Lightpotential about earthquakes and nuclear tests and how it's all to do with harmonic positions of the earth/sun/moon etc....and I did wonder, because of the timing of the Korean launch and the UK BANG...if there might be a connection.


    (speculation)

    Quote The Ministry of Defence initially said it was investigating what was behind the loud noise, but a spokesman later confirmed it was from one of two RAF Typhoons that had been launched following an emergency call from a helicopter.


    I saw this last night on the news , What I don't understand is what were they going to do to aid the civilian helicopter in trouble ???

    WHIZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz by and wave !!! I burst out laughing .....are they filming 'Casualty' from a Typhoon ...LOL...

    Chasing a UFO thats more likely !!!

    RAF Eurofighter over Kingswinford UK or was it chasing a UFO? .MOV

    Even if it was a military helicopter, or they thought it was, isn't it an odd choice to send a couple of jets flying at supersonic speed to the rescue? This incident should generate a few amusing cartoons and jokes!

    I agree that it sounds highly suspicious to send these jets in and over land. As usual they won't tell us what's going on, leaving us to speculate and form conspiracy theories.
    Whether you're a believer or not, it has something to do with the people "upstairs". The reign of terror is going to be over whether TPTW like it or not. The failed NK rocket shows that those kinds of attacks won't be allowed anymore. The cabal acts as if it's too stupid to realize that it's OVER! Frightening people is about all they have left in their arsenal.

    The Typhoon is capable of supersonic cruise without using afterburners (referred to as supercruise). According to the official German Luftwaffe and Austrian Eurofighter website, the maximum speed possible without reheat is between Mach 1.2 and Mach 1.5.[97] [N 5][99] Air Forces Monthly gives a maximum supercruise speed of Mach 1.1 for the RAF FGR4 multirole version.[100]

    Oh yeah... It will boom!

    Thank you for the link Daft Ada. This comment in the article rasied an eyebrow so to speak.

    coincidence? There was a rocket test ya?
    Then this,
    http://hisz.rsoe.hu/alertmap/site/?p...0412-34874-USA
    "Skywatchers across the Chicago area reported a streaking fireball in the sky so intense that some thought they’d witnessed a fiery plane crash on the Southeast Side. Reports of the fireball starting coming in about 8:25 p.m., according to a meteor and meteorite sighting blog, lunarmeteoritehunters.blogspot.com, with over 100 people from Illinois, Wisconsin, Michigan and Iowa reporting the light show. Descriptions ranged from simply a blue-green fireball to a yellow fireball with a red center and a trailing blue and white tail. John from North Chicago wrote “12sec nw green/blue very bright unknow it only lasted about 12sec but it was a sight to see truly amazing.” But while many delighted in the display, others thought they’d witnessed something much grimmer as emergency crews responded to 126th Street and Avenue 0 on the Far Southeast Side of the city to investigate a possible plane crash. A police helicopter was also called to help search Wolf Lake, which sits on the Illinois-Indiana border near the Hegewisch neighborhood. Searchers found nothing, and authorities soon found that while no aircraft had been reported missing, many skywatchers were reporting a “very bright” meteor falling about 8:20 p.m. and crews stopped their search, according to Fire Media Affairs. No one from NASA or the National Weather Service could immediately be reached for comment."

    Then the UK sonic boom, all seems lined up sort of orbital...
