Loud ‘explosive’ type noises last night

By js_4play 24 June 2007 10

More a question than a post – did anyone hear a series of deep loud explosive noises last night (22/6/07) coming from north Canberra region about 10pm.

Anyone who knows what they were?

Yes. It eas the new model Hyundai Elantra.
I seem to recall a few years back in Sydney, a gang was doing over Hyundai Excels. Could this be the start of something similar? I know the ne Elantra is fairly ugly, but surely ther’s better uses for TNT.

I would suggest teens wrapping fireworks together in electrical tape, lighting them, and running like the wind before it goes off.

Either that or what asp said about Goulburn…

I, too, heard some unusual explosive noises. I live in Calwell. I assumed that they were late fireworks.

“sometimes you can hear activity at the firing range”
Locked and loaded at the firing range at 10 o’clock at night when its dark and you’ve probably had a few beers. Now that’s responsible gun ownership!

I was hearing a couple of loud things here in Belconnen. Saw a couple of youths in a carpark, So I just assume it was a bit of their fun.

Depending on where you live and the wind conditions etc, sometimes you can hear activity at the firing range.

Something was up. Plenty of sirens going along Northbourne Ave.

What!!!!! Are you suggesting people are still letting off crackers after the long weekend???? I thought we all agreed that it just doesn’t happen in Canberra (tongue firmly in cheek).

Either we’re at war with Goulburn over water and they fired the first slavo, or some teens were letting of fireworks in people’s letterboxes? Judging by the deep banging sounds in the south of Canberra around Lanyon and several wrecked letterboxes, I would suspect the latter.
