Loud bang 7Jan 19

Postby Emmy4 » Tue Jan 08, 2019 10:06 pm

Hello

Did anyone else hear loud bang that shook house yesterday (7th Jan) in the middle of the night? Near Northcote road

What caused it? We were so alarmed!

Thanks

It was a sonic boom from a fighter jet “scrambled” to ward of a Russian bear bomber.

I work for a defence organisation and we track such sightings.

Happens every week. Google it. RAF have to respond quickly and their jets go supersonic to meet the Russians infringing on our airspace and testing reaction times.

Some are reported when press are aware and have nothing else to write. Most are not.

More likely to be the gas explosion at a house on Kelmscott
