Sonic Poof

Have you ever wondered what a sonic boom looks like ? Probably not. Well, this is what one looks like - it's actually a physical event.

The image is from evil live and the caption reads quote A U.S. Navy sonar technician Roald Dejarnett captured an Air Force F-22 Raptor executes a supersonic flyby over the flight deck of the aircraft carrier USS John C. Stennis (CVN 74).
Navy News unquote.

This is a meaningful picture for me because I worked for a furniture moving contractor for Lockheed Martin in Marietta, GA a while back. Our work took us to almost every building in the plant. I've got more stories than you've got time to listen. What an experience it was to help with the set up, and then watch the big presentation and roll out of the F-22.

You'll find another great image of a different plane/different angle Here.

That is awesome! I had never realized it could be captured in a photograph.
