Supersonic Flight, Sonic Booms
Sound travels at about 760 miles per hour, or 340 meters per second and
about 661 knots on an average day at sea level. And sometimes, you can
almost see it. Going close to that speed through air can cause some unusual
visual effects. This compiled footage includes F-14s, standard and Blue
Angels F-18s, plus the SR-71 and an Atlas Rocket launch. AVweb contacted
sources at NASA to research the phenomena.
