Planes Breaking The Sound Barrier

These are pictures that we rarely if ever see simply due to the fact the timing has to be precise.  When a plane hits the sound barrier it refers to the point at which an aircraft moves from transonic to supersonic speed.
The term came into use during World War II when a number of aircraft started to encounter the effects of compressibility, a collection of several unrelated aerodynamic effects. By the 1950s, new aircraft designs started to routinely “break” the sound barrier

But for simple people like us if refers to a badass point in time where a plane looks like it’s going through some kind of storm that it created on its own. And that storm happens to look pretty awesome.
