That hurts my brain trying to figure out what he is talking about. Cool pics though.

See if you can follow:

Holy crap that's fast!

BTW, you going to TWS any time soon?

Do these clouds ever end up obstructing the pilot's view forward?

Question

How fast would a ZX10R have to be traveling in Houston (very humid most of the time) for such a cloud to form? Would such a cloud form first in the ram air intake?

No, the center of pressure is where the "cloud" forms. The CP is always well back on the aircraft, otherwise it would be extremely unstable and not flyable.

A lot depends on the overall aerodynamics of the object. A F1 car wing will compress the air and create a "cloud" (small). But that's at 175~200 mph, on a very humid day. On a 10R who knows, 400, 450 mph? Don't think you can do it, even if you dropped it off the tallest building in Houston.

that's a fine comment from the "gas" man. I needed to pull out my old Chemistry books for that one

Dress for the slide & not the ride

Shoot. I bet my ZX10 does the same thing on the front straight at TWS. Unfortunately, I can't take the picture and ride at the same time or I could prove it.

BTW, there is a video of an F14 out there somewhere showing this same thing. I think it was shot from the deck of an aircraft carrier at sea.

Don't confuse me with facts, my mind is already made up.
