Breaking the Barriers

A Strange-Tripper sends this photo of his Volvo breaking the 200,000-mile mark. Nice try. Actually, I think that is an F/A-18C Hornet breaking the sound barrier just abaft of the aircraft carrier Constellation, as photographed by Ensign John Gay on July 7th, 1999, a little after 3 bells of the second watch. Correct me if I'm wrong....

Hey, that is one neat photo! Still not sure I understand the physics fully though....
