No Sonic boom from that F18 Hornet

What you're seeing there is an effect with a snappy little name that rolls off the tongue "The Prandtl-Glauert Singularity". It's seen when the humidity is right and an object gets close to breaking the sound barrier.


This is real sonic boom and as you can see this Hornet is moving a lot quicker.

Love the Vulcan

Some awsome passes, bunch of nutters (probably ride bike in their spare time:wink:)

Used to watch the Phantoms wave hopping down the Falklands 'till one of the twits got a little too wet!!:wacko:

Mt Kent was quite a hoot, could probably have toasted yer bread at the cliff face they got that bloody close! (would've used a long toasting fork as I'm not too good wi heights! :blink:)

I love the Vulcan too.

Saw it flying at Dunsfold last summer. I was totally mazed with it and when it finally left I found I was crying. Hundreds of people stood there, clapping and I wasn't the only one with tears running. I don't understand what happened but if I get another chance to see it I'll be there.

I'm a bit keen on WW2 planes. Get a lot of flypasts from Spitfires etc. where we live as we're right next to a WW2 airfield. and there's a great museum there now. Love the hammering when Spitfires dive downwards.

Also like F14's, which are pretty awesome when they almost come to a standstill overhead so you can wave to the pilot then almost knock you flat when they vanish in what seems like a split second. Magic.

Maybe I would have been happier as a pilot. The NHS is very tame in comparison :smile
