Huge bang believed to be sonic boom from jet fighter heard in skies over Aberystwyth

The so-called ‘sonic boom’, a sound associated with the shock waves created by an object travelling through the air faster than the speed of sound, occurred at approximately 1.10pm

People in Aberystwyth reported feeling a huge tremor on Monday afternoon which has been attributed to RAF jets on a training exercise in West Wales.

The so-called “sonic boom”, a sound associated with the shock waves created by an object travelling through the air faster than the speed of sound, occurred at approximately 1.10pm.

Sonic booms generate huge energy, sounding like an explosion.

A Ministry of Defence timetable confirms operational low flying training by fast jets and Hercules transport aircraft were due to take place on Monday between 10am and 1pm.

Further low flying exercises between 100ft and 250ft are planned for every day this week.

The Ministry of Defence has been asked to comment.
