Default Sonic Boom

I'm not sure if these are for real or not but they were cool looking so I'm passing them on!
A friend E-mailed these to us .

If you have ever wondered what a sonic
boom was, you are in luck. The pictures
below say it all.
For those who don't know, a sonic boom
is the bang you hear when a jet plane
breaks the sound barrier.

If you have never personally seen the
sound barrier, feast your eyes on the
pictures below.

They're authentic, but it'* not the sound barrier. It'* moisture (like a cloud) condensed and made visible in the shock wave from passing the speed of sound.

It IS the sound barrier, but it has to be done in high-moisture conditions. Low altitude over the ocean, or over land in humid conditions.

Those pics are legitimate.

Yes, I worked in Military Aviation for 4 years. 1 year in helicopters, 3 years with fighters.

that is pretty sweet to see...

there is an airbase about 10 miles away from my house so ever summer we have f15'* and such flying around the area.

I remember i was outside fooling around like 2 years ago, and had a jet sonic boom above my house, it was LOUD! I thought they weren't aloud to do it above residential areas, but i guess he decided he didn't care
