SWISS WORDS - German Word of The Day


Today at 8:34 were heard two loud bangs and the earth shook here in Zug. After a bit of googling and google-translating I was able to learn that these two "überschall-knalle" (loud bangs) were in fact two sound booms that the Swiss Air Force jets make when they fly above the speed of sound. They were accompanying a commercial airline flight out of Swiss air space after a false bomb alert was made in the United States. Possibly a word I don't want to hear too often?
