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

July 3, 2012


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.
