This picture is insane. I love the wingtip vortices as well as the condensation cloud surrounding the plane. This is one of my favorite planes.

Excellent capture of the vapor and the rainbows surrounding the wing root. Nice composition and a great capture of a fine action shot.

Well this picture really speaks for itself. Masses of condensation pouring off the jet as it speeds past in minimum burner.

Vanquished, cut through and shed, the dull Belgian atmosphere surrenders in a spectacular white rainbow-tinted burst to a B-1B. Yielding masses of condensation, its surfaces enveloped and contrails streaming from its wingtips, this B-1B swoops past and into the distance. It teases and mesmerises the viewer in its escape with scant hints of minimum afterburner, apparent visually only as four shimmering crimson halos glowing deep within, skirting the walls of each nozzle, acoustically their orchestra forms a thunderous crackle, that resonates throughout the Belgian air exaggerating the throttle setting.

I have 836.7 of the best flight hours of my life in the "Bone" and this photo is as good as any I've seen. The jet is limited to 3g's due to it's large size and judging by the "vapes" they're pulling all 3!!!!!

As a crew chief for the Bone, I get a warm fuzzy every time I see it wings swept and punching a vapor cloud through the sky

The B-1B makes an appearance in the James Bond film Never Say Never Again, launching ALCMs on a training mission that goes awry.

The angle of the shot is unique and shows more than just the plane coming thru the sound barrier. you can see the engine glow and colors refracted in the moisture around the plane. while this picture is not as clear as to what the plane is doing, it provides a completely different perspective than usual.

If i'm not mistaken, as seen from its shock wave, this Bone is about to pass Mach 1. She is so sexy. wish i could fly her fast and low. Don't know when...
