This week the 15th Air Force Wing division are engaged in training flights near Malaga.  Six F18 fighter jets are performing manoeuvres  in the area.  It’s likely that sonic booms will be heard from time to time.

Sonic Boom

A sonic boom is the sound associated with the shock waves created whenever a plane travels faster than the speed of sound. Sonic booms generate enormous amounts of sound energy, sounding similar to an explosion or a thunderclap to the human ear.

Torremolinos resident Lee Jackson heard a fly by earlier today.  “The noise was immense” he told 93.6 Global Radio.  “I saw the plane fly past, it was quite low and my office window rattled.  It’s an impressive thing.”
