Boom And...?

We were drinking afternoon tea when there was a noise like an explosion. I did a tour of the house to see if anything had toppled over. Then Ailz had me check the car.

According to the authorities the cause was two RAF fighters breaking the sound barrier as they rushed to intercept a Latvian cargo plane that had wandered away from its flight path.

So the glow on the horizon- that looked like something big was on fire over Pembury way- was entirely unrelated.
