Loud Bang Rocks Turnor Lake

It appears some low-flying fighter jets caused a bit of a stir in the Turnor Lake area last week.


Various reports from the community indicate a loud sonic boom was heard by several residents.


The local RCMP say the sound could have been caused by exercises going on at the Cold Lake air base.


However, at least one resident says she saw planes in the area.


Other residents say dishes shook and the boom lasted approximately three seconds.


Turnor Lake is less than 100 kilometres north of the Primrose Lake Air Weapons Range.
