Well, I've never heard a term for it, but that certainly describes what I
often hear. However, I am certain that it is due to the shearing forces
imparted to air molecules -- a VERY cool sound, indeed. It's similar to
thunder, and how it shears the air, causing a crackling sound when the
bolts are nearby, as opposed to the rumbling. But hey, jet engines cause
that rumbling too!
