Boeing 787 Flies Over Russia Leaving Mesmerizing Contrails

An amazing video has emerged of long contrails left by a Boeing 787 flying over the east coast of Russia. The footage, shot from a Boeing 747 on June 17, shows the condensation trails left 33,000 feet in the air. "This contrail looks dark against the rising sun," the filmer wrote online. He explained the trails are the result of hot exhaust mixing with cold air with a high moisture content. Good thing this incident wasn't anything serious!

You have to admit, although this seems very scary, it does look like a very interesting visual! There is just something mesmerizing about watching those clouds of contrail emerge from the aircraft! They look like giant clouds of grey cotton candy! The people on board must have been scared and amazed as they saw these contrails! This definitely gives you a mix of emotions!

You may never get a chance to fly a plane like this, in fact, you probably don't want to fly a plane like this, but you could always fly a r-c plane which can be so much fun!

Would you ever want to see a plane like this, knowing that everything was fine with it? Let us know in the comment section down below!

      Come on Chemtrailers where are you? You know you are creaming yourselves right now to comment. Call Jesse and see if he wants you to comment. See you on coast.LOL

        That sure is a lot of water... grab a brain. What ever is causing that plume, isn't something naturally occurring. The higher you fly, the colder it gets, when the air is many degrees sub zero, like in this photo, water will instantly become ice crystals. That doesn't look like ice crystals to me. Jas, do you really believe that there is that much atmospheric water (that high, cold and dry) just waiting to be condensed and frozen.

          I think your brain is getting nice and toasty with that tinfoil hat on :)

            Really? Can anyone honestly believe that in that crystal clear, ice cold sky, that there is so much moisture that a contrail that thick could be created. Either you are buried in moral cowardice and Must trust this to Not be a man-made plume for your personal mental comfort, or you are a gov't agent shilling for those that are that afraid. Good grief, IF there was that much moisture in the air the aircraft is traversing (there isn't), it would already be thick clouds. Nobody with any understanding buys this stupidity.

          Yes, I'm an agent. I'm looking through your window at you right now! Stop touching yourself!

            That is a funny comment, bot.

          The water is not in the air, it is created as part of the combustion process. Burning of any hydrocarbon fuel ALWAYS makes water as one of its combustion products.

            Burning kerosene produces very little water, bot. When the air is cold, and dry, there is only water from that combustion. That produces thin, wispy contrails. That movie shows a spray plane. Maybe for seeding clouds to produce rain.

      That's no contrail. That jetliner is flying out of the end of dual-tornados!

            Troll boy? I'm a 63 year old man, and was a pilot (not current in 25 years, small spam cans only). Insults aren't going to overcome understanding. Can You see how clear the weather is? You understand how cold it is right? You know that in cold air that much moisture would be clouds, don't You? If you don't You should, because it would be clouds. That isn't a contrail, little fella, that is something wet being sprayed and broken down to a thick fog. Use your head.

          Does the tinfoil help to block the CIA signals beaming into your head?

      I have been a pilot for 57 years and have flown 4 engine Jets at those altitudes, and am also a mechanical engineer. Fuel and air are mixed in both jet engines and piston engines, ignited and either moving pistons or turbines to produce thrust which makes the vehicle move in the direction of the thrust. The products of this combustion are carbon dioxide and WATER at very high temperatures. This hot mixture exits the engine to the outside air which can be 40 below zero at 30,000feet altitude. The water freezes almost instantly causing the contrails. Even the WW 2 bombers, all piston engine powered, flying at 28,000 ft produced contrails if the conditions were right. Watch the film carefully, the contrails form a short distance behind the aircraft because the water in the exhaust has to cool and freeze before developing contrails. Passengers in the aircraft cannot see them because you cannot see behind the aircraft. You can even see the corkscrew action of the contrails due to the spinning turbines in the engines rotating the air to compress it in the engines. The aircraft has two engines, and eventually you see two round contrails along the flight of the aircraft. I would guess that the colder the air, the denser the contrails. They are harmless, and plants just love carbon dioxide and water!!!

        The thing you didn't take into account that makes your conclusion wrong, is that the water that is produced is pulled from the air. When the air is extremely cold, it holds almost NO moisture in a liquid form. The combustion process that at low alititudes produces as much water as is in the air. In very cold air, most water molecules are already liquid or solid. In other words, the higher the altitude and drier the air, the thinner the contrails become. They will be very persistent because they will turn to ice crystals nearly instantly but they will be thin and will Never look like a spray plane. The pic above shows a spray plane. No bones. That plane isn't converting existing water into that thick plume. The pic demonstrates particulates being introduced at a rapid rate.

          You actually think airline pilots all over the world are flipping switches in their cockpits and are spraying chemicals? You might have noticed Stumblebrain, that the trails are coming out of the engines. If you wanted to spray something out of an aircraft, you sure wouldn't be putting anything through the engines. You do realise too, that a by-product of the combustion process when burning fuel, is that large amounts of H2O are produced? You might be 63, but that certainly doesn't guarantee that age creates wisdom, lol.

            Never THAT large of Amount. Never. That is a spray plane. When contrails are heavy (Never that heavy) most of the water is in the air. That is why, often times, there is No contrail, then there is an immediate change in atmosphere, and the contrails start and stop. Contrails Never look like that spray plane.

          Wrong,wrong,wrong Dumbstrumble. The water for the contrail comes from the chemical reaction of the fuel and air, and you would still get h2o(water) due to this chemical reaction even if there were zero water in the air.

            Contrails are thin and wispy, not thick and billowing out directly aft of the plane. From the site referenced by oZo61 above. "This layering of the air into wet and dry layers is not limited to clouds. Seemingly clear air also contains exactly the same kind of variation in layers. This was very neatly illustrated by the recent launch of the Solar Dynamics Observatory. As it ascended it did not leave a contrail, until it hit a layer of wet air, when it left a contrail that lasted quite a while, and then it went into dry air again, and no more contrail". Atmospheric water and temperature affect the formation of contrails greatly, we all know that. They never look like that spray plane in the movie.

      "hot exhaust with a high moisture content mixing with cold air" Fixed That For You

      Flew diesel eights for 12 years watching other jets go by with often puffing steam as going by... Depend how much water in the air...if dry, no steam at all from the CO2 from exhaust gas. The most impressing will be fly side by side, exactly 1,000 feet under at the same speed, it is like being bolted together! Do you know that night flyers actually often everyone fall asleep...then get wake up when going smack in the middle of thunderstorm...ever you wonder why some lose their wing at time? I never fell asleep because I dont want to die...but usually everybody else was sound asleep! But I remember watch a plane coming back so warped for flying tornadoes it got junked!
