Death from Above by EmmaLeigh

The incredible F-16 Viper showing off at our local airshow. What POWER!! The pilot graciously slowed down for a photo op, which my daughter took full advantage of.

The vapor coming off the wings was a bonus – one we didn’t know she caught until later. Don’t know if the photo does it justice, but this was one heck of a fighter jet!

    NICE SHOT EMMA LEIGH, THE MOISTURE TRAILS OVER THE TOP OF THE WING ARE CAUSED BY COMPRESSION. THE AIR IS MOVING SO FAST OVER THE TOP THAT IT COMPRESSES THE MOISTURE IN THE AIR AND IT SHOWES UP AS VAPOR TRAILS. IF YOU WATCH TOP FUEL DRAG RACERS, IN HUMID STATES YOU CAN SEE THIS SAME VAPOR TRAIL COMING OFF OF THE WINGS WHEN THEY ARE GOING ABOUT 250 MILES PER HOUR OR FASTER. SOMETIMES ON HUMID DAYS OUT HERE, WE GET TO SEE AIR VAPOR LIKE THIS ON THE C-5’S TRAILING EDGE OF HIS MAIN WING AND FLYING STABLIZER. BY THE WAY, BY LASSOING THE IMMAGE OF THE JET AND COPYING IT, YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO DO THE SAME THING WITH THIS F-16, THAT I DID WITH THE KC-10.
