B1 - B and pass the sound wall. very exciting.

A visitor from United States posted Sat July 14, 2012:
As an Air Force veteran I have always had a soft spot in my heart for the aircraft of the USAF. Being a Fuels Specialist I filled all the aircraft assigned. I was lucky enough to see these condensation effects on the flight line up close and personal . It is an awesome visual!

A visitor from United States posted Wed October 5, 2011:
I had the pleasure of being assigned to work on B-1B's while I was in the Air Force. There's nothing like watching these birds take off in full afterburner and pull straight up and away. As you look at this photo imagine it flying just above tree level at mach speed. This was it's intended ingress mode.

This picture is the embodiment of the B-1B, captured in all her glory. Grace and absolute power wrapped into one. I get goosebumps EVERY time I'm lucky enough to see her fly.....

Lancer is one of the most bomber ....
and nice picture

Only, this One-and-Only Beauty, can do this, to this day! So expertly, built by Americas's Rockwell employee's! Keep Her flying!... You just never know, we might just, God Forbid, have to threaten someone with her awesome, strategic might.

Kool plane

A visitor from United States posted Wed January 27, 2010:
Excellent shot! Must be doing about Mach .98 or so. When the aircraft is at Mach 1, the barrier is at the very aft tip of the plane, above Mach 1 it "trails" behind it. Great shot though!

A visitor from United States posted Sun November 15, 2009:
Technical quality of photo combined with unusual (less so these days, but still) subject matter. All in all an esthetically pleasing photo.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Thu October 15, 2009:
Nice picture!!!!

A visitor from United States posted Wed October 7, 2009:
2 girls at the same time or a flight in a B1....tough call.

I've got a thing for the B-1B Lancer.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Tue December 23, 2008:
This plane looks like it's wearing a tutu! I love it!

Fabulous

A visitor from United States posted Mon May 5, 2008:
Its amazing it's like there's somthing there to break through besides sound.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sat February 2, 2008:
I just like it!!

A visitor from United States posted Wed November 21, 2007:
I would say that the Mach 1.2 B-1B in this photo
is definatly breaking the sound barrier!,in very
humid conditions,Robbins,Georgia possibly.

A visitor from United States posted Mon October 8, 2007:
Excellent timing,color saturation is superb.

Ballerina:)

A visitor from United States posted Sat July 21, 2007:
The vortex around the plane makes it splendid, plus the plane itself displays a very confident personality.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Mon July 9, 2007:
Woahhhh thats awesome maaan!

A visitor from United States posted Sun February 11, 2007:
I find the detail fascinating that shows the relatively small amount of condensation near the cockpit compared to the much larger :halo" of condensation farther back. I don't really understand the physics, but this photo's very revealing and potentially instructive.

A visitor from United States posted Thu February 1, 2007:
Always love seeing another expansion wave, and on a B-1B it's even better!

Seeing a man made object piercing the natureal phenomena of the sound bsrrier

A visitor from Canada posted Wed December 13, 2006:
Great shot. Brings to light the visual effects when a aircraft breaks the sound barrier.

A visitor from Russian Federation posted Tue November 28, 2006:
Breaking the sound barrier!!!!!!!!!
The huge halo is condensation of water vapour due to lower pressure in that areas
Great PIC!!!A very rear one!!!

A visitor from United States posted Sun July 16, 2006:
Ah yes, the mighty B-1B Lancer. Wickedly fast bomber showing it's stuff. Looks like the 127thBS/184thBW boys are at it again. Amazing bird!!! Amazing photography!!!

The brilliant blue sky and the perfect timing of the shot let's you focus without distraction on the purpose of the picture: going supersonic...

It's beauty, and combination of something that seems visually impossible.

A visitor from Germany posted Tue May 2, 2006:
Very nice picture because i`ve never senn such a photo before. its not that usual "air-show photo"

A visitor from United States posted Fri April 28, 2006:
Spectacular !!

A visitor from United States posted Wed April 19, 2006:
Catching a vapor cone is one in a millon - takes a lot of skill and more than a little luck!

A visitor from United States posted Sat April 8, 2006:
I was there at the beach to witness this pass during the Blues Beach show..simply outstanding!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sat April 1, 2006:
Superb

A visitor from Germany posted Wed March 29, 2006:
It is so marvellous because of the atmospheric phenomena around the wings and tail of the aircraft!!! Never saw something like it before.

AWESOME!!

A visitor from France posted Thu January 12, 2006:
That's spectacular to see and not only hear the sound barrier

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Wed January 11, 2006:
Superb detail - four distinct low-pressure areas producing the "halo effect". Canopy, inlet cowls plus the main zone. One thing to bear in mind is that the effect needn't be when the aircraft is "breaking the sound barrier" as it can be produced near the speed of sound, should conditions allow. Stunning shot, though, congratulations...!

A visitor from Germany posted Mon January 9, 2006:
That photo is great.

A visitor from Canada posted Sat December 31, 2005:
BEAUTIFULL!

A visitor from United States posted Thu December 29, 2005:
Especially great shot because it caught the moment of transition to Mach 1 -- breaking the sound barrier.

A visitor from United States posted Fri December 23, 2005:
Great shot, great job

A visitor from Germany posted Thu December 22, 2005:
Very nice picture. Only one cloud @ the sky would be picked up by an aircraft. Pretty nice I think.

A visitor from Germany posted Sun December 18, 2005:
Good

A visitor from France posted Sun December 11, 2005:
Very beautiful effect and very good shot of this photographer !

A visitor from United States posted Mon November 14, 2005:
They shouldn't call it a "barrier", because it's not anymore! Cool shot

A visitor from Canada posted Sat November 12, 2005:
Extremely, unique.

A visitor from United States posted Tue November 8, 2005:
What a truly amazing photograph! PERFECT timing! Amazing of how jets can break through the sound barrier!

A visitor from France posted Tue November 8, 2005:
Sound barrier is so particular !

Timing is truly everything!

Wonderful----a one billion dollar aircraft crashing through "the wall"

A visitor from United States posted Tue October 18, 2005:
Showing how the water vapor is visible in the vacuum portion of the sonic boom is just plain amazing. I fly, and one thing that has always bothered me is that I cannot see the majority of the action of the air. Clouds tell the tale. This bird even sports a Mach-one misty Mohawk!

A visitor from Australia posted Wed October 5, 2005:
What sort of pressure impact on the airframe? does the vapour form at the lower pressure area's? Wow tis is one stunning picture...

A visitor from Iceland posted Sun October 2, 2005:
Great Shot

That is a bloody nice pic.

Thats an awsome pic

A visitor from Portugal posted Sat September 17, 2005:
The sound barrier effect is always amazing. And not easy to take to because of the high speed. Well taken.
