Debunking The Debunking of Falling Penguins

From a reader:

Jonah,

The debunking you linked to a short while ago on the Corner didn’t persuade. The sight and sound of an approaching Harrier is completely unlike the approach of a Lynx helicopter. The Harrier is a jet … it’s sleeker, faster (and the sound of its approach tends to lag behind it, even at less than sonic speeds). It doesn’t “chop” through the air, it cuts.

The falling penguins may indeed be an urban myth and may need debunking, but .. the snopes.com entry doesn’t do the trick.

Thanks for doing what you do. 🙂
