Permission To Buzz The Tower?: Jets Sonic Boom The Windows Out of Brazil's Supreme Federal Court Building


This is a video of two Mirage 2000 jets going supersonic as they pass over Brazil's Supreme Federal Court building during a low fly-by and, WOOPSIE, blowing all the windows out in the process. Now I'm not saying I could have seen that coming, but come on, I've seen Top Gun. Back me up, Maverick. *sobbing* "Goose! It was all my fault." Jesus, you're still crying about that? But seriously, it was all your fault, bro -- you killed him.

Hit the jump for the video. Action is all in the first couple seconds so eagle-eye that shit.

Thanks to Thebostonterrorizer, who may or may yes try to bite your socks when you walk by. Or set the entire city on fire, I have no clue.

    Perhaps now they will get their windows from Winnipeg. They really dont know what they are missing out in. So funny.

  • Everyone who was there got hearing damage. If it's strong enough to break windows, unless it just got the frequency right instead of stressing them, the sonic boom would have a terrible effect on your eardrum.

  • Wow. Sounded douchy.........French jets, go figure.

    I'm not sure but it looks like the boom knocked out some of the windows of another building too. A glass plated high rise in the back looks like its missing a few.

  • And Mythbusters said it couldn't happen..

  • They managed to break glass eventually. They busted the myth that _any_ sonic boom will shatter glass.
