    Ok folks, for all of you who have never personally seen the sound barrier, feast your eyes on the pictures.

    Actual photos of the sound barrier

    This phenomenon only happens at the instant an
    Aircraft breaks the sound barrier


    And it literally appears like the aircraft goes through a wall.


    I hope you find these pictures as fascinating as I did.

    Yes, I've seen this many times and everytime I do it brings a smile to my face. My DH is a Ret. Disabled Vet who served in the Air Force. Since we're an Air Force town, the kids when they were in elementary school put on a Tribute to the Military program saluting each of the military. They'd show this film of all the planes at the different bases and you would see this picture along with the sound.. totally awesome!! (I love planes too)
    The kids would bring in pictures of their family members who were in the military and they'd be displayed on the walls on the gym (where the program was)
    Makes me so very proud to be an American and be married to a Retired Vet.
    (sorry, didn't mean to ramble, it's just so dear to my heart)
    :oops:
