Supersonic bangs alarm Ticino residents
Several schools and a court were evacuated yesterday morning as loud bangs were heard across Ticino and northern Italy.
It was later confirmed two Italian Eurofighter jets had flown at supersonic speeds across the region. The jets were chasing an Air France Boeing 777 which had lost radio contact.
Contact was re-established with the aircraft over Lombardy.
Police in Ticino confirmed hey received hundreds of calls from concerned residents.
