Quick! Did anyone grab their license plate number?! :)
Wow. What an amazing display of instant destruction.
You can see the glass windows shatter with the first flyover. Looks like the plane's sonic boom was strong enough for the blowout.
I'm assuming a Supreme Court building has to be up there with the buildings you'd least like to accidentally destroy. Guilty! Heh.
Here's how The Aviationist explained what actually happened:
"On Jul. 1, 2012, at around 10:20 local time, the windows of the Supreme Court and Congressional buildings in Brasíla, Brazil’s capital, were shattered as two Mirage 2000 fighter jet performed a flyover during the ceremony of exchange of the national flag at the Praça dos Três Poderes, at the Esplanada dos Ministerios.
Although nobody was injured the fighter flew so low and fast that the shock wave they generated broke almost all the windows of Supreme Court glass facade.
In a statement, Brig Ar Kanitz Marcelo Damasceno, chief of the Center for Social Communication of the Força Aérea Brasileira (FAB), said that the Brazilian Air Force Command has initiated the investigation of the incident and will compensate the damage caused."
