Remark Photographer
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'.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Tue April 1, 2008:
Nothing to say!!!

A visitor from Germany posted Tue March 25, 2008:
Oh Hell yeah, that is an outstanding shot, really awesome, how you can see the two Shockwaves at the Empenage!!!
Lucky Photographer ;DD

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

A visitor from United States posted Sun January 28, 2007:
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 Greece posted Tue May 2, 2006:

A visitor from Australia posted Thu January 26, 2006:
Whoa... is this a rip in (space-time?) or a wormhole to another dimension? or have i been watching to much stargate...very cool photo anyway!

A visitor from United States posted Wed December 21, 2005:
WOW! Great shot! I love the shockwave and the blur of the backround which really makes the aircraft stand out! WOW!WOW!WOW!

Outstanding!!! Best "shockwave" shot i've ever seen

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Wed November 9, 2005:
To have captured the details at the speed the aircraft must have been flying at is amazing. Classic shock wave photo. Should be in the text books!
