Watch the attached YouTube on 720p for high definition. Go full screen. You'll know it when you see it; and you'll hear the crowd. Just wait for it. It's absolutely worth it.

Absolutely amazing space launch footage.

I love sonic boom related vids....

It's just such a beyond awesome effect....I used to watch the '18s and 14s go SS shortly after takeoff when I was in the Navy on the USS Kitty Hawk.....

And since out in the middle of the pacific...they don't have to worry about the silly FAA....they can blast the sound barrier at any altitude.

Ravenstein is disappointed. I was hoping for flames and destruction and terror...

So I take it you won't be using sonic booms when you take over the world? :p
