    While living in Los Angeles in the mid 1980s the
    Shuttle would sometimes land at Edwards AFB with an
    approach directly over the LA Basin and the double
    sonic booms were incredible. I fact, USGS seismometers
    were able to generate a ground trace and track the
    Shuttle landing real-time as the booms set off the
    seismometers along its path.
