MOBILE, Ala. (AP) - Mobile residents got a jolt Wednesday morning when a fighter jet flying out of a Florida military base caused a sonic boom.
Eglin Air Force Base spokeswoman Ashley Wright says the Royal Canadian Navy CF-18 took off on a test flight from the base in the Florida panhandle. She said the flight was scheduled to take place from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. in the airspace over Mobile and Baldwin counties.
Baldwin County emergency officials reported getting several calls from residents concerned over the loud noise shortly after 8 a.m.
