A B-52 flying so fast it broke the sound barrier and created a vapor trail.
Well if any of you were watching the news you would know that the b 52 has a new project and it did break the sound barrier.
Sorry to disappoint you, but that's not a supersonic shock wave in your picture. It's condensation forming in the low pressure areas around the plane, and such condensation can form any time a plane flies at high speed or maneuvers violently in very humid air. It doesn't require supersonic speeds.
i bet the b52 didn't break the sound barrier.
It didn't. The Boeing website lists the top speed of a B-52H at 650 mph. The speed of sound is on average 760 mph at sea level.
