PHOTOS: NASA Captures Shockwaves of Supersonic Aircrafts Using the Schlieren TechniqueUsing the Schlieren photography technique, NASA was able to capture the first air-to-air images of the interaction of shockwaves from two supersonic aircraft flying in formation in March 2019.MoreNASA flew a B-200 equipped with an updated imaging system at around 30,000 feet while the pair of T-38s remained in formation and flew at supersonic speeds at the precise moment they were directly beneath the B-200. The images were captured as a result of all three aircraft being in the exact right place at the exact right time. Captured in March 2019.MoreNASA researchers use this imagery to study these shockwaves as part of the effort to make sonic booms quieter,
