I lived in Berlin in 1982-83 when the cold war was still in full force and the wall was up. The east german air force used to fly over the border at low level and purposely break the sound barrier in jets, it would scare the living shit out of me. It sounds like a bomb going off right next to you. The americans (the south sector when I lived) used to retaliate by pointing their tank cannons towards the wall and fire off blanks, which didn't have quite the same effect, but would still scare the shit out of you if you were anywhere near them.Darkcbr said:WOW! I've never heard a sonic boom before. It must be pretty awesome.
