They broke some other things beyond the Mach barrier...

Post by The Scarf Ace » Mon Jul 02, 2012 6:31 pm

Hello, everyone. A Mirage 2000C of the Brazilian AF broke some other things beyond the Mach barrier. Yesterday (07/02/2012) during the solenity of the changing of the National Flag for a new one, two Mirage 2000C executed a supersonic flyby over the Praça dos Três Poderes (Three Power Square) in the city of Brasilia - DF, the capital of the country. During the flyby, the first Mirage created a shockwave that shattered the windows of some of the government buildings. In an official note, the AirForce stated that ''The flyby was supposed to be done at a slower speed, and the Mirages were at full military power.'' Here is the video:

Big Woops! not Totally worth it even if they did get in trouble, that's an awesome thing to get in trouble for. Maybe not discharged but don't blame the second guy at least, he was probably trying to catch up haha.

Well, actually, that was a favor, since the majority of the Brazilian politicians are corrupt. :lol:


JK, actually that's a big shame for our country. :oops:

Worth the eardrum damage !!!!!!

I am practically fine with supersonic jets travelling at Mach1+ just a few feet over my head, but I don't think others will. Do they?
