“It sounded like either a tree had come through the roof
or someone had run into my house.” -Michelle Sprout, Wichita resident at Meridian and 27th Streets, Jan. 16, 2016
by Linda Moulton Howe, Earthfiles:
More boom reports have spread in January 2016, from Pennsylvania, Oklahoma, Florida and New Jersey now to south Wichita, Kansas. There on Saturday, January 16th, at 1 PM Central, hundreds of startled people called police, fire, 911 and media such as KWCH12-TV. Some said there houses shook hard and dogs barked, but police that investigated could not find any evidence of an explosion or other disturbance.
“On December 3, 1954, at 1:40 AM, the town of East Lansing, Michigan, was shaken by a mysterious sky blast. … The Air Force has said it is quite possible we could be visited by beings from other worlds.”

Meridian and 27th streets is in southwest Wichita about 7 miles west of McConnell AFB
(lower right) home of Air Mobility Command’s 22d Air Refueling Wing (22 ARW)
whose primary mission is to provide global reach by conducting air refueling and airlift
where and when needed. Base officials said nothing on the air base was happening to
produce explosive boom sounds and they did not know what caused the
mysterious sounds heard throughout much of south Wichita.
“It sounded like either a tree had come through the roof or someone had run into my house,” said Michelle Sprout, who lives near Meridian and 27th in southwestern Wichita.
“My husband and I looked around and he didn’t see any fire or any smoke and we didn’t hear any sirens,” said Keegan Prouty at their home on 47th and K-15.
USGS had no records of any earthquakes in the area on Saturday afternoon and McConnell AFB officials said there was nothing at the base that could have caused such a widespread loud noise that shook houses.
“For nobody to know what it was or where it came from,” said Prouty. “It’s a little spooky.”

In The Flying Saucer Conspiracy © 1955 by Major Donald E. Keyhoe, U. S. Marine Corps, (Ret.), he wrote about a huge boom and “tremendous flash of light” in early 1954 described for Major Keyhoe by Eastern Airline Captain William Call.

Page 200: “In early 1954 on a flight from Boston, we were circling over Hartford Airport at 8,000 feet. We were on instruments in the overcast, waiting our turn to land. All of a sudden there was a tremendous flash — apparently from some terrific explosion. For a second, I thought an
A-bomb had gone off.
“The Hartford tower called and said they had a bad scare. An American airliner was ‘holding’ underneath us and the tower thought we’d collided. I never found out what the explosion was, but I can tell you this: none of us ever saw anything like it before.”
Major Keyhoe: “Those queer blasts have been going on for over two years (1952-1954). At first the Air Force blamed them on pilots going through the sound barrier.”
“How could that light up the sky?” asked Captain Call. “This Hartford thing was no sonic boom. Whatever it was, it lit up a 100-mile area.”
