Continuing on the Sonic Booms

Brought to you by

Ok, so, I wrote the last post before I had the info that the planes were scrambled from the 142nd Air National Guard in Portland, Oregon.

So, lets rework the math. That equates to appx 173 (portland to seattle by google maps- I know, they woudln't use roads, but we're just going for a ballpark figure) miles traveled and assuming mach 1, that's about 13.5 min. with the minimum time assuming (mach 1.8) that would be approximately 8.75 min.

So we can reasonably figure the trip took somewhere between 8.75 minutes and 13.5 minutes. I am, of course simplifying this as we don't know how long it took for them to get airborne or if they were already on patrol.
