An F-18 Hornet launched from the deck of the aircraft carrier USS Enterprise producing a shock cone as it punches through the sound barrier during "Operation Enduring Freedom". This NOT a Photoshop effect.
The shock cone is equal to the white one, but starts at the tip of the aircraft. the white cone we see is the water vapor which is condensed (so we see it like "nebulized water") some fraction of a second AFTER the shock.
Thank you ~Aster1989 for this explanation!
