Well, that's different. Nothing on the USGS map & that's updated every few minutes. Might have been a jet going into mach at a low elevation. That's been more common here, over the course of the last year. Normally, their supposed to wait until they're out over the big puddle for that.

You may have answered my question

When i was a kid, used to hear sonic booms all the time. 

Kind of in the middle between Offut, Ellsworth and Joe Foss Field.

Would and still see a lot of military aircraft but can't remember the last sonic boom I heard

Did they make it a no no?

I haven't heard one in years.

The last time I heard one, I was sitting in a tree stand in the middle of WI waiting for a deer to walk by in the end of November of 2001. We don't have a lot of military flight paths across the middle of WI so it's not a normal occurrence. Boy did I almost fall out of a tree at about 10am about a second after I saw a plane go overhead.

2 hours east of you and never knew about it except your post. Of course I can only remember felling one once in my life and that was less than  50 miles north of me. Didn’t realize it till I heard about it on the news. Thought to myself ‘oh that’s what that was.’

Sonic booms are a no, no. I believe it is Navy planes from Lemoore Navy Air base that practicing dog fighting overhead here, but never a sonic boom. When the planes are overhead you cannot have a conversation outside.

It's illegal to go supersonic over land now. When I was a kid we heard them all the time as interceptors would scramble to escort the Russian Bear bombers down the coast on their way to Cuba. More recently we'd sometimes hear the Concorde's booms as they decelerated over the ocean on their way to Kennedy. There have been some heard near DC as a private jet flew near the Capital probably with the crew passed out. It eventually crashed when fuel was exhausted. F16s were authorized for the intercept.

There's a lot of research on how to make the boom quiet enough to be tolerable, sort of a whoosh rather than a boom.

Same here.  They weren't unusual in the early sixties.

Last one I heard was in the early eighties.  I was filling a hog feeder when I heard a really loud one.  The hogs went ape.

That was in NW Missouri.
