Not a sonic boom,a vapour cloud which resulted from pulling high G in rather damp conditions.

Thank you! It was awesome to see, due to the damp conditions it was obscured by vapour almost for the entire display. :D

There was plenty of moisture in the air yes, the whole display was like watching a cloud rather than an aircraft. Made getting soaked in the rain well worth it. :D

I watched a pair of Tomcats do a high speed pass near us when I was crossing the Pacific years ago on a sailboat. They'd come down to take a peek at us, I guess, and rocked their wings when they realized we were a US flagged yacht. Then they came back around hell bent, one plane on each side of us, about 10 feet from the water, and they both had vapor cones around them... :D (That was in the days of cameras and film... I couldn't get the camera ready fast enough.)

Congrats on the DD, by the way... You are a great airshow photographer. I watch a couple of groups you post in!

:D

How many times have you seen the clouds roll in and though "Shall I even bother?" Things like this show that it is well worth while.
Once again, Congratulations on your second DD :)

I wouldn't have it any other way than our "Great British Summer" personally! We all moan about poor weather, but if it were hot and sunny every day of the summer I would moan about that too. It would of course be nice to have a finer balance in favour of better weather but I would never want sunshine every day. Too little variety and would make the gallery a tad boring. I learned everything I know about photography because of the grey and wet days. Poor light keeps you on your toes and keeps you thinking where as with blues skies you tend to sit back a bit because the light isn't as changeable. And of course as you say it produces these wonderful moments where aircraft resemble clouds. Getting soaked before hand was well worth it clearly. :)

Depends, it seems to only come from the upper side of the wings, so I think it may be caused by a (Very) high-G turn. You can see some examples here: [link]

:heart: Love this shot! I lived in St. Louis when McDonald Douglas was testing the F-15. I saw my first sight of one painted pale sky blue take of from the McD D runways at St. Louis airport in late 1971. The experience was amazing!!! It was gone seconds after I spotted it taking off, pulled over to keep from wrecking my car and watched it go ballistic immediately! I saw it later at the July 4th show at the Arch in St. Louis on the riverbank and it did a fly-by at 300+ MPH and blew people away when it approached with little warning from the announcer. There was a collective gasp from 100,000+ people! That plane was emblazoned with US military insignia, not painted that sky blue color. Magnificent aircraft! Thanks for those fun memories! :star:
