2. Jet fighters smashing through the sound barrier occurred regularly in my youth

It never failed to scare the snot out of me.

3. Same here.

I grew up in a semi-rural area about fifty miles from an Air Force base. I swear they used to fly those jets out to our area to practice breaking the sound barrier. We got used to it after a while, and it was weird when they stopped.
