Can be for sure can you.

Well, you keep believing that lie, Tyrion.
The gigantic UFOs that pilots report maybe U.S. starships and not alien in origin.

And no, if they are using antigravity or a plasma induction field there will be no sonic booms, with antigravity one can move air aside and fly in a vaccum, that won't produce any shock wave and a hot plasma induction field can ionize the air or heat it enough to cause a expansion wave that will act to negate a build up of pressure in front a vehicle that leads to producing a shock wave.

Also by ionizing the air molecules(with a sufficient electrical charge imbalance) one could use a sufficiently strong magnetic field to deflect air to lower the air density around the flow field of a vehicle that will lower pressure that acts to produce a shockwave.

For all we know they may have some alien technology that maybe much more powerful even than anitmatter or E=mc^2 energy.
