Wallpaper Description:
Photo edit of color enhancement, cropping, and image clairity

Transonic speed refers to the condition of flight in which a range of velocities of airflow exist surrounding and flowing past an air vehicle that is concurrently below, at, and above the speed of sound in the range of Mach 0.8 to 1.2, i.e. 600–900 mph. This condition depends not only on the travel speed of the craft, but also on the pressure and temperature of the airflow of the vehicle's local environment. It is formally defined as the range of speeds between the critical Mach number, when some parts of the airflow over an air vehicle are supersonic, and a higher speed, typically near Mach 1.2, when all of the airflow is supersonic. Between these speeds some of the airflow is supersonic, and some is not.

I'm impressed by the speed it can achieve. So what is that white plume of air looking like shark fins and tail? Is that a natural effect?
I've seen stealth aircrafts in a night sky looking like fast moving stars. I would have concluded that they were satellites if not for the strange propulsion that made them appear triple their size, !(the light they were emitting) and apparently jettison them forward. These occurred at regular intervals about 8 sec. apart. They covered about 140DEG. of sky in less then 30sec.
