  • A Picture of What Freedom Looks Like

    Here's a picture of what our freedom looks like: http://www.rense.com/general8/boom.htm

    (too bad we can't hear the sound!)

        I was in artillery, US Army. If you concen
        trate and don't blink you can see the red
        hot backside of the artillery shell leave
        the tube just for a split second. It is
        awesome. Some people have gotten pictures
        of the shell leaving the tube. I never could
        get that shot and it waste a lot of film.
        Go Army!!!!!!!

              I've seen the same effect on my 1970 Chev pick-up when I'm herrying home to get to the bathroom.

              What? Did I shatter the mood?

              Nonsense aside, that's an amazing picture. Kinda gives you a reason why supersonic flight takes so much energy. One of these days air transport is gonna be sub-orbital and the flight from New York to Tokyo will not only be much faster but maybe even cheaper.

                You can see shockwaves off of the surfaces of supersonic during flight as well - such as when they peel off. Turbulance off the wingtips is common.

                I have been told my farts do the same thing. I have not tried lighting them for fear of back blast. Safety First!

                  I think Trud meant that one can see shockwaves forming on the top wing surface of passenger jets. This is an interesting phenomenom, as well, if somewhat less dramatic.

                    I certainly did not intend to slight any with Army affiliations. Our freedom also wears BDU's and combat boots!!! And serves in lonely, unglamorous roles and places.

                          BDU = Battle Dress Uniform or battle fatigues.

                          The vise half-nut is still on the 'to do' list. (and unfortunately, it's a loo-o-n-ng list!)

                            About 30 years ago (On the Enterprise in the Gulf of Tonkin) I observed a shockwave around an RA-5C Vigilante. The air was humid and the wave extended a couple hundred feet above and below the plane. Also caught a less spectacular wave around an F4 Phantom on 8mm film. Gotta get that film digitized someday...
