The loud boom over Columbus remains a mystery; Robins AFB base says it wasn’t them

Local News

About 10:30 this morning, something went boom over the Columbus region.

The loud noise rattled windows in midtown Columbus and could be heard as far away as the backwaters on Lake Harding.

The last time this happened it was an aircraft from Robins Air Force Base in middle Georgia; Base officials were contacted Friday afternoon and said it was not an airplane from Robins that caused the issue. 

A Fort Benning official said it did not come from the nearby Army post.

News 3 has been making some calls to see what the disturbance was. It was likely a sonic boom but the source has not been discovered.
