F-16

In 2003, an F-16 patrolling in Iraq was called in to assist British special force troops ambushed by Iraqis. Because it was night-time, the pilot couldn’t drop his bombs without hitting the allied troops. So he dived and pulled his jet up, forming a sonic boom that hit the Iraqis, causing them to flee.
