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.

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!

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

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'.
