Brazillian Mirage 2k low-level Sonic Booms blow out all the windows on Federal building.

As far as having a natural ability or instinct for something , when it comes to fast machines, very few can compete with the talents of Brazilians.

Their ability to push F1 cars on the track and ACM in the air is second to none.

I confess I haven’t flown with or against Brazilian pilots, but I have accidently boomed a small town and blown out windows. Does that count?

There is something awesome about that. It's like something right out of fiction.

When you go supersonic, is there a particular level of effort that it takes to push past it or is it something more like drifting into the yellow arc on my little piston airplane?

Why was it so hard for the myth busters to achieve broken windows with the Blue Angels?

I've heard for years that supersonic jets have broken windows on land and port holes on ships, when my uncle was in the South African air force there was a Mirage F1 pilot that went super sonic
over Cape town and apparently a lot of car and building windows were shattered and some people hospitalized for hearing issues.

But when they tried to break windows on the myth busters iirc they battled to do it and I can't remember if they actually did or not.

Its probably a function of how air tight the building is. The sound waves (waves of compressed air) make the window bow in and out in a frequency. I'm not sure if being air tight would help to prevent the window from breaking or if it would contrubute to it.

Mythbusters also used a pretty small window. Larger surface area equals a greater area for the forces to work against and a much more "flex". Glass doesn't like to flex.
Man has the right to self defense. All those who would use it for nefarious means may they rest in peace. All those who use it to pretect the innocent, may the live in peace.
