Super sonic booms

I just saw a bit of Mythbusters where they tried to break windows using supersonic F-18s. And only succeeded when flying at 60 m.

But that's flying in a straight line. I'm sure the pilots must have known that you can create super sonic booms by flying in spiral curve with decreasing radius with the "target" on the inside of the curve. If you really want to, you can determine how many degrees off the nose you should keep it at a certain speed. And put a mark on the canopy there and make the people on the "trawler" which is actually a signals intelligence vessel miserable. Just as an example.
