Military Exercises Likely Cause of Recent “Booms” – Iran Vows to Send Warships to Gulf of Mexico

REGIONAL – The sound of loud booms along the Gulf coast of Florida have rattled windows and the nerves of many residents for years. In recent weeks those ground shaking booms have become more frequent and residents are asking why.

According the Department of Defense, the United States Military conducts exercises in in a 200-square mile area, just off the northwest coast of Florida. Tyndall Air Force Base is home to the 325th Fighter Wing and a possible source of the loud booms.

Historically, the exercises have consisted of air-to-air missile tests and sonic booms created when aircraft reach the speed of sound. Some aircraft reach speeds between 1,300 and nearly 1,900 mph. The sound barrier is broken at only 750 mph.

Another possible source of the loud booms could be Navy bomb training at the Pinecastle Range located in the Ocala National Forest.


Recent tensions between Iran and the United States prompted a warning from Iran’s Navy Commander, Rear Admiral Hossein Khanzadi, that he plans to send warships to the Gulf of Mexico.

In a statement Khansadi said, “Our fleet of warships will be sent to the Atlantic Ocean in the near future and will visit one of the friendly states in South America and the Gulf of Mexico.”

Khanzadi’s declaration is in response to U.S. vessels being present in the Persian Gulf.

Although a likely cause for the loud booms, the military will not confirm when or where exercises take place. If they are indeed caused by missile tests and sonic booms, the question is whether the increased frequency is to display a show of force, as Iranian warships head towards the region.

It should be noted that CENTCOM, U.S. Central Command, is located in Tampa at MacDill Air Force Base.

        • Thank you for your service Enzo.
          People, STOP with the name calling, error corrections etc. We need to be United. If I were in an emergency and needed help, my first response would not be “Can you spell? I would be saying, please help me”
          I am so tired of the childish behavior from the “adults” in our “civilized society” today.

  • Give me a break. That’s not even believable. Iran has vintage ships at best and in small numbers compared to ours. Still running on diesel powered turbines. They still have no nuclear capabilities. It’s like a squirrel taking on a tyranasaurus.

  • From the spelling/grammar errors I’d say we need more TEACHERS. We won’t mention names but you are what’s wrong with America. Brawn and no brain does not win battles. I bet if you were faced with the enemy you’d be running to join your buddies who don’t have brains either.

    • Lol you must be referring to me…
      My apologies for my missed spelling
      It was to early in the morning.
      Your comment is totally off, you will be one of the ones who run and hide when the sh_t hits the fan… Which is ok
      May your pencil be strong enough to protect you in this case cause any of us who will be willing protect our shores will still look at you as a piece of sh_t that you really are! Good luck….
