Sonic boom linked to military flight

Posted: Updated:
BURLINGTON, Vt. -

Turns out that a loud noise and shaking many experienced Thursday was a sonic boom -- courtesy of the military.

The Massachusetts Air National Guard says a routine training flight in a F-15C broke the sound barrier at 20-thousand feet.  The sonic boom could be heard and felt from Bradford, Vermont down to Lyme, New Hampshire.  The commander of the Massachusetts Air Guard says his unit never intended to cause undue concern.
