J-5022 (cn 1371/SFC022) Look at the shockwaves on that! I can't say that I have seen shockwaves as visible as this before, just one of those lucky shots I guess.

Amazing shot!

Oh, and visitor from Russia? The F/A-18 is a great aircraft, you disgust me with your ignorant comment calling it a 'poor craft'.

Etremely rare shock view. Most fotos present smoke-like view, but not that.

Wow! first time I've ever seen a picture of the shockwaves. Also, i never knew the swiss had an air force.

A visitor from Philippines posted Mon May 8, 2006:

A visitor from United States posted Wed December 21, 2005:
