Cool Morning Contrail

Thought you might like this video I took. The thick cockpit glass and suns angle made the focus a little soft. Still cool though......

Don't let Al Gore see this. He would probably think that 787 is burning coal!

Reminds me of the Hyundai Sonata that grenaded its engine on the freeway yesterday. Only difference was I was behind the POS at the time.

Great contrail.
This reminded something from childhood, neighbours alcoholic lady taught us that planes left contrails only when they crossed borders.

Drudge Report

Lou, your contrail Vedic made Drudge Report this morning. The Mirror picked it up but didn't mention you or Ferrari Chat.

I looked at the YouTube featuring this video and after reading some of the comments I can't believe how many people actually think that the contrails are some kind of liquid oxygen or chemicals being sprayed. Yeah, we did this chemical spraying every time the B-24's and B-17's flew over Germany at 30,000 feet. You could see hundreds at the same time when a large formation came over. It didn't sound like these people were kidding but I hope so. Are there that many numbskulls around?
LouB747 is giving the world something that they would never see if it wasn't for videos like this. I once read that for every gallon of fuel burned there was a gallon of H2O produced, don't know if that is correct but it IS WATER VAPOR that freezes in temps that can be as low as 60 degrees below zero. Same thing that cars exhausts or a person's breath does on a cold winter day. Okay, I know that everyone knows this.

There is a mass ratio of about 1.37 water to 1.0 kerosene which equates about 1 gallon water per gallon of kerosene burned.

Remember, Bob, H20 is a chemical. So the crazies are correct, they are chemtrails!

Okay, you're correct, everything is chemical but I detected an inference that the trails were from some nefarious additive I used to watch them form behind the B-24 and it looked like they condensed about 70-100 feet behind the airplane. Temps were in the -20 to -30 range and sometimes going through a "hot" patch, they wouldn't form at all for a couple of seconds.
Lou's videos are outstanding!

In combat, altitudes are often varied to prevent being in a contrail environment. Pretty easy to spot an aircraft that is conning. Later in WW-II, there were so many aircraft, it just did not make much difference. Same reason they stopped putting camo on the aircraft.
