The white halo you can see on the pics is called the Prandtl–Glauert singularity (sometimes referred to as a "vapor cone"). It is the point at which a sudden drop in air pressure occurs, and is generally accepted as the cause of the visible condensation cloud that often surrounds an aircraft traveling at transonic speeds. That’s quite impressive.

hi 5 year s ago MARK AS SPAM
Dude I have a suggestion...
On a single page, could you make an index of all the titles of the posts with some descriptions...

So for example if I am searchin for something to share with someone I can scroll through the links and select them easily....

you can name it "Index"

thanks!
