Loud explosion heard in and around Lemoore was from military jet

FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) — For those who have been in Lemoore on Friday afternoon and heard a loud explosion, there isn’t any cause to be alarmed.

Naval Air Station Lemoore says the sound was a army jet that by chance broke the sound barrier during a routine coaching mission.

The F-18 Tremendous Hornet was being flown as a part of a routine training mission, the naval air station stated, but the public was in no hazard.

It apologized for any concern the sound might have brought on.
