The Lakehurst military base is nearby

First off it's Lakehurst Naval Air Base. (idiot reporting.)

Secondly McGuire Air Force Base is just a few nautical miles south.

Hiking in the NJ Pine Barrens I often wondered about the zipping sound I would occasionally hear. Turned out it was Air Force Reserve firing off A10 rounds.

Down in Atlantic County there is another airfield that trains military cargo aircraft. Also Dover Delaware has air flight training.

These are sonic booms or the over enthusiastic pilot wagging wings for his family. Yes they do it. I saw one last week.

An unlikely source for noise.
