Putting music over footage like this is criminal.

I always thought a sonic boom sounded like a gun firing. Not techno music.

What amazing machines man. The speed at which they are moving is mind boggling. Hats off to the amazing engineers that designed these.

It's a genius to put the background music louder than the boom

I was in the navy on an aircraft carrier and when they put on a show for us they flew past us like the first video. I rember feeling the gust of wind when it went past. Amazing times

The sonic booms are happening almost every day here where I live. They are low to the ground many times and when it happens the whole house shakes, dogs are afraid, and it hurts the ears. It is also shaking the house causing our floor to drop from the collums.

The vapor cone has nothing to do with breaking the sound barrier. You can see vapour cones form at high G banking turns at subsonic speeds.

This video should just be called "The Sonic Boom Remix"!

one of my dad's buddies had to eject at 650 knots at like 6 thousand feet. he lost 4, 500 as he ejected, and 5, 000 when the parachute pulled. from what i heard from him, his left shoulder was dislocated, something happened to his knee and many other bad things happened.

moral: never eat cereal with water

Makes total sense to put background music in a video where the only thing to look out is a sound made by the jet. Great work guys!

The best parts are when the boom muffles the music

"Here's a few more that didn't make the list"

Proceeds to showing the best example in the entire video.
