Lets improve the coverage in Spain so we can find out which Mil Jets are breaking the sound barrier :)

Might have picked up the Jet on Mode-S.

Jumpy lot, those Spaniards...
It happens regularly here, most weeks - we've got used to sonic booms in these parts!.  Usually a pair of French Airforce jets playing with each other.  Also a lot of VERY low flying amongst the hills.  Spectacular, but noisy.

Sorry - just seen this post.
Just back from 2 weeks in a hotel overlooking the airport at Palma (Majorca). Lots of Spanaish AF aircraft in/out (including Mirages and Hornets) and none using Mode S, let alone ADSB. Therefore suspect we wouldn't pick up anything however good the coverage.
