How fast must one be doing to reach that point?

From what I read it is actually caused by a low pressure area forming during high-g, subsonic maneuvers, in humid conditions. I basically stole that explanation, but it seemed to explain it best.

Hope this helps a little.

I always thought that was the pressure of breaking the sound barrier? lol

That causes a similar effect, yes. Breaking the sound barrier makes kind of a cloud-lookin' thing form on the front of the air craft in a cone shape. In the movie Iron Man, he breaks the sound barrier at one point and you can see it.

I've also seen a few pictures of MiG's doing that, but I can't remember where :P .

He is really not going that fast. At this point in the turn a lot of energy is lost. But the high-G load, in humid air will cause this.
