Solution

Nitrogen oxide emitted from the exhausts of supersonic jet aeroplanes readily combine with ozone to form nitrogen dioxide and diatomic oxygen.

NO(g) + O3(g) NO2(g) +O2(g)

Since supersonic jets fly in the stratosphere near the ozone layer, they are responsible for the depletion of ozone layer.
