Wow, was that the 1944 or 1945 model?

Just being a pain. /i/smilies/16x16_robot-happy.gif

Looks like he`s preparing to jump into the next system! Is anyone technical (and boring enough) to explain exactly what causes this to happen.

Cos I`m dumb. And would like to know... /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Its because the F14 is travelling faster than the speed of sound. The water must be warm and the ambient air quite humid. The humity in the air condenses in the low pressure trough around the supersonic aircraft instantly craeting the cloud like cones. One the F14 has passed the extra air pressure gets absorbed by the surrounding air and the clouds dissapate... This only happens at low altitudes where there is a lot of moisture. ie over water. There is a pic of an FA/18 out there with the same clouds forming around it. Depending on how far past the sound barrier the jet has gone the farther back the clouds will form... Looks like this F14 was doing almost exactly the speed of sound...

Thnx. Now I am a little wiser.

Geez... /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif I thought they weren't allowed to pop the barrier that close to the carrier. (No pun intended.)

really? they punished him? It looks like that was planned . . . .

I saw this a last spring on ATOT, and had my physics teacher explain it to me.

Looks like someone nearby has a really bad ping/i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Been there seen that, I don't know how many times. Yeah they were someplace with high humidity, and once they are outside the FFA prohibited airspace they pop the barrier all the time. It's good for morale on the ship. Woke me up quite a few times when I worked nite check. Thought the ship had exploded. lol /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

actually it was planned that way the ship had some high brass aboard and what you see is an airshow.many many cams were running at that one.as for being out of faa juri.well lets just say id rather face them than the airboss and the capt.

i dont know for sure but my uncle got to go uot on my cousins ac carrier for a special family thing, and the had an f-18 do the same thing. the f-18 also shot at barrels roped together floting in the water during the show. i saw the videos he took. it seems this is a regular thing they do. vheck out thiscip i found well surfing http://services.flypaper.com/download/plain/s-flyby.mpg?flyfile=flyfile%3A%2F%2Fsite%3A2656%2FDa tabase%2F9978480977909113%2F9978495207493495%2Fs-flyby.mpg&enc=y


ahh its a crap plane anyway!!!
