      It was the West Midlands so didn't hear it in the East Midlands where I am...never heard a sonic boom either

      I heard it too in the Cotswolds - nearly jumped out of my skin! Sounded like something huge had crashed into the house. Sort of glad it wasn't just me hearing things

      Oh, I think that's what we heard too (Gloucester). My daughter asked what the noise was and I said I thought it was the thunder back (we had a thunderstorm this afternoon!).

      Now they are saying that a Typhoon jet was scrambled because they thought a small plane had been hijacked but it was the pilot transmitting on the wrong frequency! Don't know if that's right though.

      Just been on the news. it was an RAF jet going to the aid of a helicopter, and it managed to break the sound barrier and create a sonic boom. Said it could be heard in Wilts also, but I didn't hear it. Miss everything!

      They f**k you up, your mum and dad. They may not mean to, but they do.
      They fill you with the faults they had, and add some extra, just for you.

      Re: Mystery explosion in the Midlands!

      I was walking outside in the field with the little fella and there was a boom-boom and the ground shook! He looked at me and said "do you think we should go back inside" and we rushed back to the house pronto! It was pretty obvious from the double boom sound that it was a sonic boom like Concorde used to make but Birmingham Airport said it definitely wasn't and then the MoD confirmed it was
