We consider Riemann problems for the compressible Euler system in aerodynamics in two space dimensions. The solutionsinvolve shock waves, hyperbolic and elliptic regions. There are also regions which we call semi-hyperbolic. We have shownbefore the existence of such solutions, and now we show regularity of the boundaries of such regions.
