RAF Typhoon fighters were scrambled from Coningsby on Monday because an Air France flight had stopped responding to radio calls. This became a news item due to the sonic booms which were apparently heard across swathes of Yorkshire. Our windows remained unrattled but when Mrs G visited a client near Doncaster yesterday they mentioned that the booms had brought their neighbourhood out on the street.

As Jim has pointed out - the title of this post should be "Boom, Boom". Only the fox knows why.
