These are some dedicated photographers to wait around to get a shot like that.
Nikon used a shot of another F/A-18 breaking the sound barrier for an ad once. It was pretty cool
I took one of a thunderbird almost breaking the sound barrier..... It's not as cool but..... still cool here
While your there check out the other pictures from the airshow here
That's awesome, check this video out... http://www.kettering.edu/~drussell/Demos/doppler/mach1.mpg
I was wondering where I could find this video again, Thanks.
what causes that cloud-like effect?
that is a cool photo. infact it might have to be my desktop picture for the next few days!
The right mix of water vapor, desity and temperature, I think.
Check out this link.
I'm not sure that it's about the go past Mach 1. That condensation looks fairly similar to that which follows the edges of the rear wings on F1 cars when they're at speed (220MPH or so tops, but you can see it at 150MPH). Of course, I doubt that either the T-Birds or the Blue Angels ever go supersonic while performing maneuvers, due to safety concerns.
Probably taken by a Photographer's Mate Seaman Apprentice with nothing else to do...they eat shots like that for breakfast.
Nice pic. There's a nearly identical photo on the Navy Newstand web site, taken at an airshow.
Some Navy guys go to work and take photos of awesome jets taking off from aircraft carriers? Nice work if you can get it .
They don't. It would make everyone's ears bleed that was watching and break glass around 5 miles away. Not a good thing... (can you say, "Lawsuits?" )
that is a brilliant shot
I like the picture very much. Capturing a shot like that takes not only a dedicated photographer, but also knowledge of the conditions. Your post made me laugh, Counterfit.
Nope. Those streams of condensation are caused by an area of low pressure at the wing root, and usually occur during high-humidy times while the aircraft is pulling a lot of Gs.
Neat corkscrews formed by propellers.
Dramatic display of vapor from an MD-11.
Sometimes you can see huge clouds of condensation at the intakes of jet engines when they are at full power.
BTW, if you want more of the most amazing aviation photos ever, check the "editor's choice" search on the photo search page of airliners.net.
I wonder how they took the pic
I'm holding you personally responsible for the hours I'll waste here.
Thanks a lot!
Yeah, it's the greatest picture site ever. They are my main source of desktop images. I have the WebShots program which cycles the desktop image every 15 minutes on my PC, but WebShots only lets you download 5 of their images a day, so I just go and get as many as I want a day from A.net
