I'm not a total aviation nut, but I certainly enjoy a good airshow. A buddy sent me these pictures posted on a forum from an air show in the UK.

04 and 20 are just beautiful.

05 and 06 are amazing because you can see the rounds leaving the cannon AND the shockwave from the bullets.

14 and 19 have visible rounds as well - taken with a very good camera, apparently.

Nope, F-18 in a hard turn. An odd little effect known as "Prandtl-Glauert singularity" or in hard turns like that it can be caused by compressed air coming around the wing/body and decompressing quickly. Either way, the result is visible condensation
