Contrail? More like CHEMtrail...

I can't wait until someone starts having A380 service out of O'Hare, I swear the first time I see one overhead I'm going to turn into a little kid from the excitement.

Isn't that a little closer than they like air traffic to be?

I'm pretty sure the 747 crew wouldn't be going "ohhh pretty plane" if they were worried about the separation not being enough.

Doesn't wake turbulence flow down and behind? I'm guessing the A380 had a rough ride after passing the 747...

Bladel: Doesn't wake turbulence flow down and behind? I'm guessing the A380 had a rough ride after passing the 747...

He crossed right under him. It takes a while for the wake turbulence to descend, so unless he crossed under his path a few miles aft of the 747, no turbulence to speak of.

Also, wake turbulence isn't overly prominent at cruise speed and configuration. Slow and dirty is the most dangerous.

But, came here for this:

and got a bonus this:

BigSnatch: Whoa. Double contrail. All the way.

baka-san: Isn't that a little closer than they like air traffic to be?

I'm presuming that's why the note on the video mentions they were warned by Hong Kong air traffic controllers?

Dunno though, I'm no pilot.

It's interesting to see other planes in the sky even far away, from the cheap seats, though. Most of the time in a plane (particularly over the boring, boring, BORING ocean) it seems like you're not moving, but when you see another plane not going exactly parallel to you see how fast everything is.

Heh. Some of the most hilarious radio EVAR is those hard-core militia conspiracy shows on shortwave, they're always going on about the chemtrails and how the government is laying the grid down, etc. SRS BNZ.

I was a bit worried that with 15 comments ahead of mine, any chemtrail comment I made (I planned something like, skip to 1:16 to see the chemtrail dispensers) would be late, but I didn't expect it to be the first.

Grrr!

At 1:09 however, you can see the A-380 firing missiles.

(Or it may be a cockpit reflection.)

What I love about dumbasses on Fark is that a single word of German makes them go all Godwin'n'shiat. One would almost think that it was the 1930s or 40s. After all, has anything really happened in Germany since 1945?

Oh god I love chemtrail nutjobs. That's some serious crazy right there.

I spent about an hour debating one of them, to the point he had tears in his eyes. He had spoken about it a few times prior, so I did some hard research and had a counter to every single one of his claims.

It's like they want a conspiracy like this, to make themselves feel like somebody, somewhere, thinks they're important enough to poison and dupe.

Looks like they had 1000ft vertical separation, which is perfectly normal in cruise.

In the terminal area, 500ft and visual separation is all that is needed.

B747 passing 500ft below my C172 (new window) The B747 was at 3000ft, I was at 3500ft.

That raises some questions. The average man in Dutchland is over 6 feet tall. The average womens are about 5'10.

And you want to make fun of the way they talk. Do you make fun of rice people?

LavenderWolf: I love chemtrail nutjobs.

You are correct sir!
There are no such things as CHEMTRAILS,
only new-found "persistent contrails"-

Here are two photos of contrails created by bombers during WWII. They look the same to me as your photo.

Here's one caused by small aircraft dogfighting over London.

www.majhost.com

And here's an entire huge gallary of WWII contrails

I have two questions for you - two questions that I've never heard a chemtrail believer answer: 1) if these are mind control chemicals, why are they staying in the air? Don't they need to descend to the ground like crop-duster chemicals in order to affect us? If your theory is that they're used for whether control, how is that a conspiracy, given that all climatologists readily admit the effect of contrails on ground temperature (see, global dimming).

Question 2) How much chemical is involved? Aircraft create contrails for thousands of miles. How big are the tanks that are needed to carry all that chemical? How are they fitting passengers into the planes if the planes have to carry huge tanks? And if your answer is, "there are no people on the plane" well, I can use a pair of binoculars and see the livery and type of a large aircraft. I can use flight tracker software to see where it took off, where it's landing, and what flight it is. I can find people who bought a ticket for that flight. If the people aren't on the plane, then how did they get from point A to point B? Are they in on the conspiracy? Is everybody but you in on it?

Oops! I posted the same one twice. If a mod wants to replace my third photo with this one, that'd be awesome. Thanks.

UNAUTHORIZED FINGER: all the good names are gone: Contrail? More like CHEMtrail...

Airbus? More like SCAREbus, amirite?


Airbus / Scarebus continues its ritual un-prosecuted pre-meditated killing of passengers world wide. From forcing tsunami destroyed countries to buy Scarebus to get aid, to failing the A380 150% wing-loading test, Scarebus builds on its reputation for falling out of the sky. FL35, cruise and it "breaks up". Nice. Good planes.

Punk'D!


What's the fuss? Airbus has opted for a super size aeroplane that will render the stalwart B747 all but obsolete, transporting a vast scrum of bodies in one neat package. While offering 49 percent more room than a Boeing 747, the Airbus 380's operating costs are cited at around 15 to 20 percent lower per seat. Add to this claims of fewer emissions, less noise, and a seat capacity stretching from the median 555 to a staggering 800 (double the heaving bottoms on a B747), and it's small wonder airline accountants are beaming. Airbus claims its plane is more fuel efficient than a car. This shall be put to the test as fuel prices remain irksomely unpredictable, having crossed a wallet-thumping US$140 per barrel in the not too distant past.

My 4 yr old daughter started asking about contrails and how they are made. She knows they are caused by planes but the 'how' is what she wants to know now (No, I don't give her the chemtrail BS). She gets excited when ever she sees one now, wants to know where the plane is, where it's going and who's on it.
