Great photos of the shear layer!

Actually i think the altitude works against us because a given speed will equate to a higher mach number the higher you go. We're already bumping up against the mach drag divergence issues. Dont have the mach calc in front of me right now but 500mph at 14000ft could mean m=0.85 or something crazy...
