Sounds in the night: Flying in the middle of nowhere
from By Mark Huber
I live in the area of the United States that can be charitably called the middle of nowhere. Step outside in the winter, and the only thing you are likely to hear is your own breathing. Yep, sound carries here. In the dead of night, I can hear a jet at 30,000 feet some 30 or even 40 miles away. This, combined with the recent and perpetual 24/7 "breaking news" coverage of the disappearance of Malaysian Airlines Flight 370, put me to asking, what would happen if one of my midnight visitors came down into the trees or a lake around here?
