Supersonic Jets Over Islamabad Skies – May be?

Today Islamabad and Rawalpindi got quite some scare of the explosions. Speculations are they could be some supersonic jets.

As geo reports:

Police officials in Rawalpindi say there is no evidence of any actual explosion having taken place. A senior police official in Rawalpindi told he was unaware of any actual explosion, and suggested the sound may have been from jets breaking the sound barrier. However officials at the Pakistan Air Force said that none of its jets had broken the sound barrier today.

If I remember accurately back in 96-97, an Indian jet flied in airs of Islamabad breaking the sound barriers. Ironically, our air forces woke up hours after the incident.

Nothing concrete yet.

    Human Faith Religion

    Human faith is a religious devoted to the God (Rab) of humanity (Rabi). This is our doctrines of religion even in the absence of physical proof of the force that guide life from way beyond the natural world. We place our trust in God (Rab) and we know that the trustee of the trust is humanity (Rabi). Human Faith allegiance and loyalty is for the ruler of the universe (Rab).The spiritual change from loneness to loveliness is based on love by giving unlimited trust in God (Rab). Human mind is miracle of Supreme Being when we struggle to boil it at luck warm temperature of wisdom to understand fundamental of life by reading (Rabi). The ever lasting stage of satisfaction for mind is to reach Supreme Being before death. The journey of memories can be pleasant with nine affirmations of human faith. We believe that it is time to joggle every conscious to show them that human mind is superior matter not material. The festival of life can be celebrated with wisdom of human faith knowledge once we realize that we are part of the superior race. It advocates spiritual and moral principles on very high scales for the longest term in human history. Human faith is Adam’s monotheistic faith and knows that God is the creator and overseer of the universe at all the time and all matters. It is time to modernize our faith by adopting true faith and educate mankind in accordance with basic principle of life. Our vision is to introduce true human religion by mobilizing communities and faiths around the world to improve people’s lives .Our mission is to strength the bond of humanity (Rabi) by introducing human faith religion .


    Rabi has many meaning in our language.
    1. Rabi is Book of Human Faith.
    2. Rabi is brain.
    3. Rabi is humanity.
    4. Rabi is our tongue.

    PAF has announced that it was sound barrier – if true then it was an irresponsible act.

    khanum: not much of excitement it was, let me assure you :>

    emran: something other than super-sonic?? like what comes to your mind??

    humanity: Good GOD – you wrote all this??

    azface: ditto the yawn :>

    anwar: it was. Creating a chaos on land.

    It can be anything….. a bomb blast may be, and they are not showing it due to any reason. who knows :(

    What kinda stupid crap is all this??? Supersonic (faster then speed of sound) aircrafts have been flying since long time by PAF. Sound speed is = 343 m/s or 1235km per hour. F-16 fighter jets can reach easily up to 2400km per hour.

    Dont you notice on events like 23 march when we see fighter jets we see them first, then sound comes few second after, it is cause sound waves are catching up with the moving object. Its not like we hear huge blasts all the time… It actually also links with time travel if you study deeper with the Einstein theory of relativity.

    please people we r a poor country but v should at least have common sense… And Mr. Humanity go get a life looser… do something for the economy of this country… idiot

    You don’t know how happy you made me by condemning the content of humanity’s post. I am sure there is hope for our nation.

    I truly believe we need to rise above the illogical and utterly useless faith based philosophies and try to use our common sense and inner good nature to make life decisions.

    Dushanbe: Spot on that we need to focus on improving our economic condition before we descend into chaos just like our ‘friendly’ neighbours Afghanistan and Iran.

    I am still not sure, who to believe….these days when we have internal threats & external pressure for how to run over country. We get regular friendly messages from our neighbours i.e dead bodies of innocent people in jails, attack on our checkposts by so called friendly BOSS, serious threats by neighbouring president who spent long time here before getting this seat by……

    anyway I am happy that that was only a sound,,,,,, it can be fighter jets from across the border or may be our piolts on the newly arrived F-16’s.
