Sonic boom heard in Stambourne

A loud ‘explosion’ was heard around 1pm this afternoon, 12 January 2021 which may have bemused residents.

Rather than thunder or an explosion, it was an RAF Typhoon scrambled from RAF Coningsby called to investigate a plane which was no longer responding to Air Traffic Control.
