Sonic boom shatters windows in Brazil

National pride so strong, it shatters glass. Before you break into chants of “U-S-A! U-S-A!,” note that this window-breaking display of national enthusiasm happened in Brazil.

Fighter jets conducting a flag exchange ceremony in the Brazilian capital of Brasíla created a sonic boom when the Mirage 2000 planes soared too close to the ground. The powerful shock wave shattered nearly all the windows of the nearby Supreme Court building.
