Q. I heard some loud noises last night near the airport. It sounded like explosions. Can you find out what those were? It was between 10 and 11:30 p.m. Nov. 13.
A. Your thunderous experience remains a mystery.
Gary W. Broughton, director of operations at Wilmington International Airport, said, “We have no reports of any noises or explosions at the airport on Nov. 13. I would have been advised of any issues or incidents of this nature.”
Debra Cottle, 9-1-1 manager for the New Hanover County Sheriff’s Office, reviewed the department’s records from Nov. 13. She said, “I checked our records. I couldn’t find anything that fits that description.”
