It is highly unlikely that I took this photo--nor did my scientifically minded husband. (while we're blogging, he's looking up this kind of stuff) I believe it falls into the public domain category. But can you imagine the look on the face of the science minded person that took it? :) The caption read, 'Off the coast of Pusan, South Korea, July 7, 1999 -- An F/A-18 Hornet assigned to Strike Fighter Squadron One Five One (VFA-151) breaks the sound barrier in the skies over the Pacific Ocean. VFA-151 is deployed aboard USS Constellation'. There's a gallery of these 'boom blooms' at Livescience.
They're forecasting lots of LOUD fireworks for the upcoming holiday weekend. We still have some days left for Summerfest. There is also a buzz 'bout decibels at Wimbelton. One of these days I will learn how to embed sound bytes...Until then, Happy Trails and...Cum On Feel the Noize!
