  • Supersonic bang over Antibes last weekend

    How many people heard the huge supersonic bang over Antibes last weekend?

    According to the news a plane came onto the radar without working radio (I presume they mean transponder?) and they scrambled a mirage from Toulon to see what it was. The mirage did not hang about and went supersonic somewhere near Antibes - I assume at a not very great altitude and there was a hell of a bang.

    There was a second much quieter bang later, which I assume was the plane going sub-sonic, but much further away.

    Anybody know any more about this and which was the 'guilty' plane which caused the scare? What height was the plane (or the mirage)?
