Nice Phantom J-A. I remember visiting my relatives in Germany as a kid in the 70s and seeing the Phantoms and Starfighters doing low level supersonic runs, and occasionally hearing about their interactions with high tension wires .
Amazing how long a service life they've actually had
I grew up in Germany near the iron fence - those jets rattled our windows all the time, day and night, so much that we got totally used to sonic booms like it was part of the weather.
Even more common noise was Bell UH-1D's coming in with their rotor clapping, all Apocalypse Now style, right over the top of our houses. In 1983 I was in some of those as a German paratrooper, flying down the Fulda Gap a few times so low you had your feet almost touch the trees as you sat in the open doors ready to get out. Cold war was a crazy time - we all thought we'd be dead in minutes anyway, with all those nukes pointed at us.
