Gosh no word on that noise at all in the media this morning. I think I might call KVIA or FOX. I live over by Sunland Park Mall and at around 11:11PM 1/30 there was a REAL LOUD noise coming from the east south east. Sounded like a blow torch or like standing about 40 feet away from a jet engine. I swear I thought a jet crashed. Police helicopter was up and spot lighting the area for about 15 minutes but I don't think they came up with anything. Some people might think it was the power station over by the race track casino But it was just too load.

it amazes me that Brittany Spears can walk out of Starbucks and we know it minutes later on the net, but this strange noise is not reported in the media? What was that? I got a call from El Paso this morning from freaked out friends.

That was the freakiest noise I've ever heard. I'm leary to think it was military because if it was why would the helicopters be frantically searching afterwards?...


#10 Jan 31, 2010
My guess is because the military doesnt always coordinate it's training missions with the neighbors. I saw a HELO flying in the area afterwards, I think it was USBP and not the cops. To be honest it is very common to see USBP HELO traffic in that area at that time of night. I dont think they could have scrambled a HELO that fast.

Still doesn't explain the noise. That wasn't a common jet or helicopter sound.I've never heard that sound before. I called KFOX and they've heard nothing of the noise

Ok I did call KVIA. The guy that answered the phone said he hadn't heard anything about it. It was a pretty bad day over in j-town, going to be getting a bunch of news on that so we might not get any answers about the noise. Oh and I did call the EPPD over on Osbourne they did get a bunch of calls about the noise but they didn't have an explaination. Also today I talk to a guy that lives up by Franklin High School and even he heard it.

this is 6 months after this post in late june. i live by mesa and resler and heard a rumble that seemed to loud to be a jet. it seemed to be going over my house. i went outside and i was passing over the mountain. it sounded like one long explosion on the east side. it was definitely louder than police sirens and fire engines down the street.

Sometimes meteors coming through the atmosphere make such a noise.

Well this evening I heard a Very similar noise again, about half as loud as the one back in January. This time it seemed to be moving Northwest to Southeast. Sounds like a blow torch. Didn't see anything.

I liv e in northeast and I got up to use the restroom when I heard a loud airplane jet engine type sound goin over the whole area where I live. It sounds like a plane engine that's parked right outside and running for a while. It lasted for about 2 minutes. Anybody heard this?
