It must be my neighbor in the valley behind me. His bombs shake houses a couple miles away! One of my upstairs windows shattered in place Xmas night about 8. I thought about reporting him but I think hes well connected in our tiny 4 car police department.

Funny that the Government is now admitting to study Alien visitors now and all the booms heard around the world. coincidence, I think not.

3. Any time they gain permission to pursue a national threat.


Having said that, somebody at FAA may have been "advised" of 1 and 2. Number 3 they would have been heavily involved in that scenario!
1 would not matter or make any difference.
2 I was not aware there were such zones. I thought there simply were no supersonic flights anywhere over US soil
3 With cause, I fully can understand.

As to commercial flights, I do not know of any planes other than the Concorde that could fly supersonic. Airliners certainly cannot take the stress of the transsonic range.

The Russians had the Tu-144. The Citation X was also briefly taken supersonic for testing during certification.
