    Hrm, you heard it in Orlando?! I was under the impression you had to be much further down the glidepath than Orlando to hear the boom.

    I get to hear way too many booms living out in West Texas open air country.

    Yep, and various fighters out of the Forth Worth JRB(lockheed operates many of these craft for maintenance, upgrades, various services to my understanding)

    At times we can even see groups of T38's doing low level supersonic flight.
    Lots of open space out here.

    Yes, about 2 minutes before touchdown.
