Jets go boom

July 6, 2012 by Alton K. Marsh, Senior Editor, AOPA Pilot

Our friends at AvWeb discovered two videos, one of Brazilian jets breaking the glass facade of the country’s supreme court building, and another of U.S. jets blasting by the U.S.S. Carl Vinson, creating a rumble in San Diego and worrying residents 35 miles away. You’ll see window glass falling in the first two seconds of the Brazil video. Families were on the Carl Vinson to enjoy pre-July 4th festivities, as you’ll see. As one said, “Oh yeah!”

    I’m hoping it will prove possible to attain supersonic flight without generating window-breaking sonic booms. If so, we may then hope that for those willing to pay a big enough fare, it will be possible to fly from Chicago, New York City, Washington DC et cetera, to Europe at Mach 1.8 or thereabouts.
