Bahrain Mirror: An official source at the General Command of the Bahrain Defence Force (BDF) said that on Sunday, October 8, a Royal Bahraini Air Force (RBAF)'s fighter jet broke the sound barrier while conducting a night training exercise. The aircraft's exceeding the speed of sound resulted in a sonic boom which generated significant sound energy similar to explosions, the source added.
