https://theaviationist.com/wp-content/u ... sation.jpg “...condensation clouds that appeared around the JSF: known as shock collar or vapour cone, these cloud are generated by a sudden drop in pressure associated with high speed that allows water vapour to condense as vapour. Although many believe that these clouds appear when aircraft “break” the sound barrier, they can appear when the planes fly at subsonic speed, in humid air. The photographs in this post were taken at Leeuwarden by The Aviationist’s Jacek Siminski.” https://theaviationist.com/2016/06/15/t ... -f-35-jsf/

That shot would look awesome if it wasn't all messed up with compression noise and low res conversion (they've even put on the pretty colored lights ... getting a bit arty).

I'm not understanding your 'not understanding' about the "pretty colored lights" (plus how the photo was taken & technology discussed in another thread). Lights are ship & aircraft navigation lights which are also reflected off metal surfaces - longer exposure times in low light otherwise makes them APPEAR brighter than they are in reality - at night etc.

Google search by image is your friend. Here's the original image that I have denoised and cleaned up:

Resampled down by 50% to reduce noise further:

That first picture should be on the desktops of every Russian and Chinese AD planner along with the caption "How do we beat that?!"
