    It's called the Prandtl-Glauert singularity and I've seen quite a few. My Dad is a military aircraft propulsion engineer.

    It really doesn't look all that great from a distance but makes for some amazing photos.

    yeah. they are pretty neat. but it happens so fast though. the sonic booms though, that is what is impresive. we have a few F22 and F18s staying at the base i work at, so you hear a few every week or so.

    I wonder what kind of camera they used for those shots?

    Nice stuff!

    Post Sonic booms

    I have seen photographs like the ones Kal-el published in the first post, that's all. Now, on military parades, I have heard some and in past coup d'etats I have, also, heard some sonic booms...

    A curiosity: some years ago I heard something like a sonic boom, but it was not exactly that. It was sudden, strong and brief. On the next day nothing was said in the newspapers. On the days following, on a radio program, there were comments about that misterious explosion: various explanations were analized but, since those couldn't explain the mistery, were discarded. The best was a meteorite explosion but, until now, I haven't heard anything on that sense and it remained as a mystery...
