Well, if you assume the observer must be in an enclosed 
atmosphere, then it's conceivable that material from the 
explosion hitting the shell of the enclosure would cause 
some sort of "bang." OK, it's a stretch.

Easy. He based his fight scenes on WWII dogfight footage. 
Of course you can always come up with your own explanations: 
better visibility into the turn from the cockpit, or better 
distribution of the G-forces on the pilot's body...

C'mon, it's fiction. Suspend your disbelief.
