The Big Boom

We get military aircraft flying over us several times a day here in Wales, sometimes very low[1] (training manoeuvres I presume). This afternoon I was working outside when I was startled by what sounded like two very loud thunderclaps a fraction of a second apart. It took me a couple of moments to realise that I'd just experienced a sonic boom! I quickly looked around but couldn't see anything in the sky due to low cloud cover. No windows broken as far as I know; I don't think it passed directly over the house.

[1] Every time it happens I hear the Top Gun theme tune in my head...
