I don't know why this label got changed to an F-35C--it's actually an "A" model, the type used by the USAF.

Great pic !!

Didn't see this pic until after I commented on your other shot - it was labeled "C" as well. Both pics are great!

Not very "Stealthy" if it makes a big white cloud surrounding it in a blue sky.... Nudge, Nudge, Wink, Wink...
Great pic!!!!

Wow!!!

Great shot BOOM BOOM

Hey there, I’m very new to the whole aviation world, and really enjoy all of these great shots. Question for the community though: Do they allow the aircraft in this Fort Worth Airshow to break the sound barrier? I live near Traverse City MI where the Blue Angels come every other year for an Airshow at the National Cherry Fest and I have always heard they specifically have to keep below the sound barrier as to not blow everyone’s windows out. Is the location of this Fort Worth show not one that has a lot of development around to worry about such a thing when the barrier is broken?

Can't comment on the specifics of your question pohlcatace14, but Concorde only got flew supersonic after it was over the Atlantic and beyond Ireland, yet the sonic Boom would be heard heard back in Cornwall and Devon (England). Everyone would smile and say "Concorde's opened up." The reason it didn't go supersonic is for the reason you've stated, everyone's windows would get blown out

Awesome pic
Bill Butler
This one's not quite supersonic.

amazing moment

beautiful ! Quite a shock wave. At this point, does the pilot need to quickly accelerate out of this because of the low altitude turbulence ?

@pohlcatace14:
What we see here is scientifically known as a "Prandtl-Glauert singularity", and it is not directly related to accelerating through Mach 1.
-
Quoting Professor Mark Cramer of Engineering Science and Mechanics at Virginia Polytechnic Institute:
"Finally, it should be clear that Prandtl-Glauert condensation has nothing to do with "breaking the sound barrier" and is not a Star Trek-like "burst" through Mach one. An aircraft can generate a Prandtl-Glauert condensation cloud without ever exceeding the speed of sound."
David Seider
@sarafinc:
This phenomenon is no overt danger to plane or pilot.
In the early days of transsonic and sonic flight, there were numerous control difficulties due to the lack of knowlege of aerodynamics at these speeds. These aerodynamic forces are much better understood today, and (for the most part) we know how to deal with them.

WOW!!!!

Impactante el estallido sonico

@pohlcatace14-look at the 4th video. https://eugeneleeslover.com/VIDEOS/Blue_Angels.html
