PORTLAND, Ore. - The Portland Air National Guard says they do not believe F-15 fighters are to blame for loud booms heard throughout our area on Saturday.

The Air National Guard checked Portland's flight track and determined jets were conducting training flights over the Northwest when a series of strange rumbling noises hit.

However, the two jets that broke the sound barrier were over the ocean and pointing west. That sonic boom would not have traveled more than 20 miles.

As for jets headed for Portland, the Air National Guard says they were on approach and flying far too slow to cause a boom.

"If it was us, we'll confess and make sure we look at procedures and make sure it doesn't happen again," said Captain Misti Mazzia "We care about not leaving any noise footprint on our community."

Many people on base heard the noise as well, but say it was much different than a sonic boom.

The Air National Guard will now check Seattle's flight track to see if any other jets may have been flying at the time.

isn't that the 2nd time in the last two months for strange booms heard in portland?
