Does the F-22 go supersonic over land, and private and public properties and the residents under that airspace in AK. We had read that is was going to impact native people in the area, but never heard that anyone else would be affected. Do the sonic booms, focused booms take place almost daily if they are taking place where most of the public live?

Thought once that they were doing them, but not sure though. It might be illegal to do this, but I lost my bag with documantation in it about what I thought was sonic booms and was wondering if that's why you brought this up?

I brought this up because Holloman AFB, NM aircraft is allowing the F-22 and it's other aircraft to conduct sonic booms,combat training and use of chaff, flares, and other military actions over public and private properties in Southern New Mexico there are plans on expanding into other counties in NM and West Texas using airspace over the public as "primary airspace" for use by various aircraft in the future. The public concerns are being basically ignored by the AF, FAA, and elected officials at different levels. What is being done in NM has never been done in other areas of the country and tens of thousands of people and animals and also private properties and environment are being negatively affected. I was interested in knowing if this is taking place in AK too and to what extent is it affecting people,the animals,and whole environments.

Instead of bitching about sonic booms, you should embrace them as they are the sound of freedom. Go hug a cactus.

I've lived in Alaska for over 20 years and I have yet to hear a single sonic boom. I've heard them elsewhere including Edwards AFB in California and found them no more annoying than a sudden loud thunderclap from a nearby lightning strike.

"Loud Thunderclap", Edwards AFB, CA...you must be associated with the military or government. That's how they describe sonic booms "like close thunder, like distant thunder, like a thunder clap." How ridiculous. Peoples homes are being cracked all over, and people are even having concusions in some areas of NM, bleeding of nostrils after sonic booms, etc., animals going wild. Apparently, you haven't been around what is going on in NM and apparently they aren't sonic booming over densely populated communities in most areas of AK. We'll find out how the poor native people are doing in AK with he sonic booms.

I see you've already been shot down on the Alamagordo forum in the "Weed NM Sonic Booms meeting" thread as well as others. You can expect the same here.

As for the "poor native people" dealing with sonic booms, even if they could hear them they're not going to care as long as they (along with every other Alaskan resident) continue receiving their annual $1000+ per head Permanent Fund Dividend payment.

It's easy to see that AK probably more than likely has some problems going on with sonic booms that should be looked at further. As far as opinions from those who want to keep things as they are in AK, these forums are not the deciding factor in what is right or wrong. That's why there are humane organizations and lawyers.

I have lived in Alaska for 30+ years, both in Anchorage near JBER and further out. I spend a great deal of my free time out in the bush hunting/fishing and have never once heard a sonic boom here. I have heard them in the lower 48 though.

Additionally, I have never once heard of any natives, either groups or individuals, mention them either.

You just came in here with some personal agenda to try and stir some sh**, didn't you?

I live in the Chena Hot Springs Area near Fairbanks and I can tell you for the last week we've experienced no less than 10 very strong sonic booms this past week, in fact that last one was less than 10 minutes ago.

I do live in Anchorage Alaska and I am hearing and dealing with the effects of the Sonic Booms 3-6 times a week, calling APD they claim they have no idea what I am talking about. Initially the lights flicker as if someone hit a power box then we hear the boom. Sounds as if a plane hit our building....

The latest boom was at 7:40PM I live in the Turnagain area..... I would like to know what is happening. This is extremely disturbing to say the least. Not to mention I truly beleave that there is something bigger then what we can imagine happening here in Alaska. Because of it being a popular Tourist attraction and many many more reasons that there is a HUGE cover up. I posted some things on my FACEBOOK account that was happening in our area and my account is NOT accessible any longer no matter what I do to retrieve it. I know, I know BIG SURPRISE RIGHT!It will be a miracle if there isnt any repercussions for simply posting my comments now. I hope someone can even read this other then the ones being paid to make the rest look insane.

Get out of Alaska NOW! They're tracking your every move with that microchip they implanted inside your head! They've been making you THINK you hear sonic booms as part of a ploy to control your mind.

Obviously someone needs to be accountable for what is going on there too. Thanks for responding.

Those sonic booms shouldn't be done in proximity of human and animals life. They aren't the sound of freedom as some say, they are the sound of abuse of power. This issue needs to be looked into there and here.
