It looks like the special effects department have been at work in this image of a fighter jet with a cloud of mist around it.

But this cloud created by a U.S. Navy Super Hornet off the Peruvian coast is known as a 'shock collar' or 'vapour cone', created in certain atmospheric conditions at high speeds.

In this case the 35million jet was flying at 760mph over the Pacific coastline having taken off from the aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson.
