Media reports as well as accounts of users on Twitter have revealed that a massive explosion was heard in the Washington, DC area. People could reportedly hear it in Annapolis, Northern Virginia, as well as in the nation’s capital city.
American journalist Andrew Leyden reported that the DC Air National Guard was in the process of conducting air defense drills over the Chesapeake Bay, and was allowed to go supersonic during an exercise, as well as an F-16 from Atlantic City.

Fox News correspondent Lucas Tomlinson provided an update on the events on Twitter, writing that a DC National Guard F-16 “was ‘cleared supersonic to respond’ to unknown Cessna ignoring radio queries flying on ‘strange flight path’ outside nation’s capital, officials say.
The FAA said that the Cessna crashed near Staunton, Virginia, according to Tomlinson.
