I saw that, but the angle and orgin of the shock waves doesn't look right. Should't be that straight around nose, and I don't know that pitot tube can generate its own shock wave. Of course how shock waves behave depends on a lot of factors. F-35's shape is quite different from that of T-38. I have no idea F-35's shockwaves should look like. Especally that around its Diverterless Supersonic Intakes. Would be interesting to actually see them in schlieren images.
