Loud bangs/explosions

Postby BST » Tue Apr 06, 2021 8:17 am

Out of curiosity, did anyone here 5 very loud bangs/ explosions just after 9am last night? Friends heard the noise from Kefalas to Gavalochori. Noise appeared to come from Vrysses/Vamos direction. If it had been Akrotiri, I would have put it down to military. 1 loud boom maybe plane going through sound barrier....but 5????

I'm guessing... a party ... I've been at events where someone will go outside with a box of ammo and fire the whole box into the air ...

Now you come to mention it, we heard them too in Kokkino Horio, but just assumed they were fireworks for some celebration or another. Didn't investigate! Bob.
Yesterday today was tomorrow. Don't dilly dally!

I heard them too. Thought they sounded more boom-like, than explosions. Do you think it could be anything to do with the arrival of planes for this?

Definitely a boom as you say. Sounded like planes going breaking sound barrier but at 9pm?? Didn't sound like fireworks.
