On November 5, 2003, Concorde G-BOAG flew from JFK to BFI in 3 hours 55 minutes. Part of this flight was supersonic - over Canadian territory. Does anyone have the routing for this flight?

Afraid not, but it wasn't so unusual, plenty of BA Concorde charters went supersonic over Canada up to 2000. Over sparsely populated areas of course.
Clearly not too near you, the boom was 20 miles wide!

I hear Continental EWR-SEA flights on my scanner over Winnipeg. Possibly the routing was over Manitoba, but I am not sure. I wasn't listening to my scanner that morning.

Hope this helps!

Concorde flew over the many large lakes in Canada, so the boom didn't cause to much damage if it did make its way to land.

Yeah the sonic boom didn't cause much damage but the captain later said to press something like:

"I bet we made some moose shit themselves!"

It's true!

DC-10,

I did a quick search online for anywords like that and came up with nothing. Any thoughts on where that quote came from. Or are you stretching the truth a little.
