I woke up last night to an incredibly loud screeching noise that sounded like a mix between a fire truck and an airplane falling out of the sky. Did any one else hear it or know what it was? It was creepy and a little scary. I've never heard anything like it before. I looked on the internet but couldn't find anything mentioning it.

Next time run outside with a flashlight jumping up and down is best for this you see - and find out!

Also, I understand that if your make barking noises while you are jumping up and down you will not only secure your safety - you will also discover your first step to RECOVERY!

What a shame someone can't ask a simple question without attracting a bunch of idiotic responses. A simple, "I didn't hear anything" or "I don't know, I heard it and was wondering too" would have been sufficient. Tavannia, I hope you get a reasonable answer, but don't count on it here.

Thanks for the idiotic replies. If I had realized that 8 year olds came on here to answer questions I would have never posted.

Thanks for your response. I'm glad somebody with some intelligence decided to answer.

What kind of name is Tavannia? Naming you that was about the same as someone holding you down and crapping in your face.
You're right. It's just about as stupid as the name 'Ambush.'

Its Friday Sept 16th, 2011 @ aprox 10:50pm.
I live in the Highland Creek part of Charlotte. About twenty minutes ago i woke up to what sounded like the grand finale of a fireworks show... boom boom boom boom, over and over again,.
Massive Bass booms coming from outside. As i went outside to see where it was coming from, it was coming from the sky.
Did anyone else experience this!??!!?

It could have been sonic "booms" from military aircraft exceeding the speed of sound in the restricted airspace in that area.

Apparently we aren't the only ones hearing strange noises.

Friday night I heard it too. Im in Charlotte, near Huntersville. Sometime around 10pm. At first I thought a tractor trailor was applying airbrakes. But it was too frequent and too loud and yet distant. By the 3rd time , I got a little concerned. I also felt a slight vibration what it happened. I heard it about 7 times I estimate. Go to youtube and check out strange noise in Kiev. This is somewhat similar to what I heard.

I live on wt Harris and David cox I've heard those same sounds, my entire was even woken up early on sep 17 2011 to the strange noises being reported every online. My wife and I quickly dismissed the sounds, seeing that our kids where getting very uncomtable. I only started looking up what I heard after coming across a video, after hearing the sound again it all came back and the hair on my body started to stand up. Please if anybody else gets more info on the phenomena please let me know. Thanks

I live in Highland Creek and I heard the noises last night. 3 very loud noises, close together. Around 9:30. Sounded like the noises in Kiev although shorter and closer together. Nothing in the news. Wonder what it could be?
