3d. Roar with this breaking sound barrier? It's hairy! (8)

I have S?D?B?RN. So I suppose the answer is "sideburn". If so, can someone please explain it.

I suppose it relates to side-burners or some sort of after-burner. i.e. fire the after-burner to make a plane increase speed. Any better ideas.

I thought it might involve a word meaning roar 'breaking' the letters S&B. Nae luck with that though. I'd like to know what the setter was thinking of...
