Abstract : The appendix contains samples of questionnaires used during the interviews that took place from February to July 1964 in the Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, area. That area was repeatedly exposed to sonic booms generated to simulate overpressure levels that are expected for supersonic transport overflights. The schedule provided for eight sonic booms per day. During the 6-month period, almost 3,000 local residents were interviewed three times to determine the nature and extent of their reactions to the sonic booms.
