SUPERSONIC FLIGHT F 18 of Swiss AirForce Breaks Sound Barrier with Prandtl-Glauert Singularity

Sudden visible vapour cloud / Sonic boom / breaking the sound barrier: An F/A-18C Hornet assigned to Strike Fighter Squadron (VFA) 113 breaks the sound barrier during an air power demonstration over the Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson, Pacific Ocean (June 6, 2011).

An F/A-18 Hornet was photographed just as it broke the sound barrier. When an airplane travels at a speed faster than sound, density waves of sound emitted by the plane cannot precede the plane, and so accumulate in a cone behind the plane. When this shock wave passes, a listener hears all at once the sound emitted over a longer period: a sonic boom. As a plane accelerates to just break the sound barrier, however, an unusual cloud might form. The origin of this cloud is still debated....
