Just after 2pm the Federal Aviation Administration confirmed to KIRO Radio that the explosions were in fact sonic booms from two F-15 fighter jets that were scrambled to the area because of a plane that entered the restricted airspace around Air Force One.

Been hearing what sounds like the hum of a small aircraft, but its only coming from above my house, sometimes i can hear it kinda downshift or throttle change like an airplane BUT, there are no planes about, im currently scoping to see if there are at higher alt. but all i can see is clear skies...
sometimes the pitch lasts for 40 mins at a time, it sounds much like a 500ft drum break with a really loud groan.

Early Hours of yesterday morning around 7am 3rd July 2011 Directly above my house there was 5 continuous explosions overhead very very loud after each explosion there was a whooshing water noise when it had finished.(Almost like heavy gun fire)And then all of a sudden It went dead quiet I was waiting to hear police sirens and maybe fire engines thinking maybe a drug Lab had blown up in a house nearby or something.It was like something i never heard before in my life. A noise that scared the living daylights out of me. During the noise i heard my nextdoor neighbours screen door slam. I was really glad to hear it,as i knew she too must of heard it. Or if not,I was going crazy!I asked her later on in the day if she had heard it and she said "YES" I called our local police station to see if there was any other reports or information on it? And there answer was NO nobody else has heard it? I think its very strange that the same noise is heard on the other side of the world...But only select few get to hear it...There are a few reasons posted here and really dont know which one to beleive. But know it is a sound I will always remember cause of never hearing anything like it before in my life. its now 2.44am the next morning and I am so wired up i can not sleep looking for a answer...Thanks to all for your story's they have helped somewhat...

I found out from a pretty reliable source that the noise is coming from simpson kraft paper on the port. It is a relief valve on a system that is designed to recycle some unused energy (steam?) at the cost of our sanity. I'm all for the environment but really? Whoever thought this was a good idea is an idiot or really more concerned about his/her company profits than our community.
Jim sorry to dissapoint you but this is also happening in Australia as well same senario! please read my post that I posted today on 4th July 2011.

Today I woke up around 5am or so hearing this sound of engine(apparently) above my apartment being very very loud. Sounded like some sort of plane going around perhaps?!? I truly have no clue, looked outside and count figure out what that was. Since I just moved to WA and Federal Way only a month ago I would love to find out what that is.

Just heard this loud noise as well, like an airplane directly above my house near Saghalie Middle School. Scared me so much that I jumped out of bed and ran out of my room, it was so loud I thought something was about to crash through my window! Anyone else experience this tonight? Since its the 4th of July week maybe weird fireworks?

This morning at 2:25am I woke up and after heard an extremely loud horn as if it were accruiseship air horn blasting right outside of the window. Wife woke up and said what was that!? I told her it sounded like a ram horn or cruise ship horn. After that there was a droning rumble for 5 minutes or more like a plane. We have lived here around Tacoma-Seattle-Puyallup and never heard this kind of horn sound before. It was very eerie and there was nothing around that wouldve made that noise. Wondering if anyone heard it as well? This was in Federal Way.

Seriously? Have we went from NG jets inspecting a private craft during a Presidential visit, all documented and true , to reporting 'loud' noises? Hell, people, when I hear noises out side my house I look up! I normally ignore the usual Army helicopters but the unusual I look up. It's ET people! lol And sonic booms....I know what they sound like...and I am not afraid.
