Those are always cool to see

There's actually one out there with those that was filmed by what appears to be a crew member of an aircraft carrier and the plane does a fly by, there's a boom and then in the distance, explodes.

Not a happy ending on that one.

I remember hearing sonic booms when I was a kid. I kinda miss them. The awe of it. And thunder. And lightning...

The F-117 (I think) one of those stealth planes has an exhaust diffuser that makes it look like it's doing that the whole time that it's underway.

It did a flyover at Sears Point once before the Cup race. I remember thinking "Damn - that's awfully slow for a sonic boom!"

Turns out - no boom!
