The only picture ever taken of Concorde flying at Mach 2 (1,350 mph). Taken from an RAF Tornado fighter jet, which only rendezvoused with Concorde for 4 minutes over the Irish Sea: The Tornado was rapidly running out of fuel, struggling to keep up with Concorde at Mach 2.

Blackburn Buccaneer S2. Using the more powerful Spey engines. The aircraft was designed to run at high subsonic speed at low level, but the lack of supersonic performance meant it was reluctantly accepted by the RAF after the cancellation of the TSR2. Always seen as a stopgap, the aircraft suffered from a lack of development of its radar and electronics.

The 22,000lb Bomb of the RAF lives up to its nickname “Grand Slam”.  The picture shows one leaving on a #WW2 #Lancaster bomber during an attack on the famous viaduct at Arnsberg, south east of Hamm, on March 29th, 1945, and another picture showing the bomb exploding on the target.

A cloud forms as this F/A-18 Hornet aircraft speeds up to supersonic speed. Aircraft flying this fast push air up to the very limits of its speed, forming what's called a bow shock in front of them. Similar bow shocks are also found in a variety of forms in space, and new research suggests they may contribute to heating of the material around them.

F22 goes transonic in a cloud. Literally.The plane’s near-supersonic speed changes the temperature and pressure of the air around it, causing ambient moisture to condense. Clouds naturally follow.

UK2 XF923 Bristol 188 1962-04-03 Filton BAeColl.jpg (1024×688) Bristol 188 (1962) was a British supersonic research aircraft built by the Bristol Aeroplane Company in the 1950s. Its length, slender cross-section and intended purpose led to its being nicknamed the "Flaming Pencil". It failed to attain the designed M2 speed and couldn't maintain top speed long enough to study thermal effects of supersonic flight. Cancelled in 1964.
