Speaking of unexpected booms, there is nothing in the world that will spike your blood pressure quite like this-
Squatting in the desert, looking at a bit of mangled 80 yr old military ordnance, trying to determine if it is still live, trying NOT to kneel on a rattlesnake- when a young pilot driving an F-16 whips up from behind you, at Mach 1.2, 500 feet off the deck, and you suddenly recieve an unexpected BA-BOOM sonic boom.
Funny. Yeah, hilarious. Well, will not need my cardiac stress test THIS year......
What we have here is... failure- to communicate.
