A major explosion was heard in Paris which reverberated throughout the city after the jamming of a fighter plane

Police say the loud bang was caused by a fighter plane breaking through the sound barrier

The plane had been scrambled in response to another plane passing through the city’s restricted airspace

« In any case, I just felt a huge explosion which made our barge vibrate on the Seine here »
