Carmi at Written, Inc. just posted the theme for this week's Thematic Photographic.
Since the theme is aviation.....
and since today cyberspace is full of photos of the visible shock wave created by the Navy's new F-22 Raptor as it breaks the sound barrier......

June 22: A U.S. Air Force F-22 Raptor creates a visible shock wave as it passes over the aircraft carrier USS John C. Stennis in the Gulf of Alaska. The visual effect is created by moisture trapped between crests in a sound wave at or near the moment a jet goes supersonic.
and since I have some of my own photos of FA-18 Hornet supersonic shock waves......
it only made sense that I reprise some photos from my cruise-of-a-lifetime aboard the USS Dwight D Eisenhower (CVN69).
Gorgeous! I never get tired of looking at photos of our Navy's aircraft, especially when their power creates such a beautiful phenomenon of physics.
This new theme just started over at Carmi's, so you have plenty of time to get in your photos of aviation. Check it out and all the terrific photos from contributors.
