Screaming Jets

Supersonic Flight, Sonic Booms

There was an air show here this weekend. No military jet fighter acrobatic teams, instead we got the Breitling jet team. There was a lone F-18 Hornet shooting around the ski. I'm listening to the sound and I'm looking around for him. You can't tell where he is when you are surrounded by houses. And then I realize that if I were in a different place, like Syria, that sound could be terrifying. He might be coming for you and if he is, he's bringing a big bottle of hurt. The weird part of this is that my daughter was thinking the same thing. But here we are in America reveling in the awesome sound being produced by this instrument of destruction.
