I have seen Photos like this one come in my e-mail more than once.  When I started seeing a lot of them I figured that they were Fauxtography instead of Photography.  I found out the other night that they are indeed real.  At Live Science they have fourteen more with write ups about the Jets and where they were taken.  This one was taken…

“Off the coast of Pusan, South Korea, July 7, 1999 — An F/A-18 Hornet assigned to Strike Fighter Squadron One Five One (VFA-151) breaks the sound barrier in the skies over the Pacific Ocean. VFA-151 is deployed aboard USS Constellation (CVN 64).”
