High speed run... Because aircraft wings generate both low-pressure regions (because of lift) and amplified low-pressure disturbances, large low-pressure regions exist near the aircraft, especially under sonic flight conditions. Air over the upper surface of a wing is moving faster than the air traversing the lower surface which reduces the pressure and creates lift. The lowered pressure condenses the water in the air, creating a vapor cloud. As the jet produces these pressure waves and propagates ahead of them, the regions of lower pressure are usually strongest behind the nose of the jet, on the wings and body. As the aircraft continues to speed up, approaching the speed of sound, the vapor cloud will appear to move farther toward the rear of the aircraft. This is where the upper and lower airflows will converge at supersonic speed and can create a visible shockwave.

Walter, Giovannini, Pinnabianca, and 66ilmoro,

Thank you for your very kind words and taking the time to view this photo. I sincerely appreciate each comment and have added to the description of this image. I hope the explanation is helpful for those of you who are interested. As a side note, the lens was set to VR 'active' and I panned with the aircraft as it flew by.

Best regards,
