SAC Denies Blame for Chicago Sonic Boom Artesian to Face Judge OMAHA, Neb. (UPl)-The Strategic Air Command (SAC) ·-aded innocent Saturday lo scaring the daylights out of Chicago. / ...» oAC officers added that j jet fighter from the Air oefense Command, flying faster than the speed of sound might have caused the sonic bo'orri which shook Chicago's South Side Friday night. The big boom came at 11:2 P.M. CPT and rattled window panes from 70th Street to th Indiana state line. Thousands of persons rani rom their homes. An off-duty tiverdale, 111., policeman was ,0 excited he forgot to put on iis pants before dashing into ;he street. More than 1,500 persons telephoned news papers, fire-alarms offices and police stations asking what had blown up. SAC headquarters in Omaha said it had learned that the Air Defense Command, which has fighter craft at Bunker Hill AFB in Indiana, had one F106 Delta Dagger jet fighter lying faster than sound for about one minute about 112 miles south of Chicago. Information given to SAC said the F10G pilot reached Mach 1.4 at 10:34 p.m. EST, at a heading of 330 degrees at 41,000 feel. It was not certain, however, that this could have caused the loud blast heard in the Chicago area, SAC said. Other supersonic jet fighters are based at Truax Fielt in Michigan, SAC said, but il had no word on whether any of these planes was up. The 305th Bomb Wing at Bunker Hill reported it had no B58s in the air during the night. SAC said the 43d Bomb Wing at Carswoll AFB had a B58 up, but it was flying In the Rapid City, S.D., corridor, too far away to have caused a blast heard in Chicago.
