    Here in the UK when our airspace was closed I didn't notice a great deal when outside - I'm not underneath a flightpath so the noise was minimal. But when they started flying again boy did I notice it, not from the noise but those wretched trails in the sky.
    I took this on Saturday 24th on Stanage Edge (GH1 + 14-140mm)

    There are conspiracy theorists who say those are a gov't program to pacify people. Google "chemtrails" some time you need to polish up your tinfoil hat.

    I used to live in Wilts and would hear the Concorde fly over every evening. Despite being a tiny speck in the sky it would shake the house!

    Careful Gary - I've just joined the NorthWest group and was going to offer to organise a trip around Barton Airfield - but if everyone is so anti-aviation perhaps no-one will be interested :biggrin:

    Nice shot by the way - I know that trigpoint!!

    chemtrails are something to be concerned about and looked into , why is every move to examine unknown, poorly understood , and plain misrepresented phenomena seen as tin foil hat?,
    spend 10 hours of true research in the so called war on terror and you will quickly realize how much you have been delibrately misled by those in charge and their obedient yellow lapdogs the MS Media. treason is the only word....

    look at the last 3 wars america started, and the civilian , military ,ecological , and budgetary debacle it was and is and of course MSM consider its a barely reported non subject ???
    but tiger woods sex life is ??? shhhhhesh!!!
    orwell spins in his grave .

    Aye those things aren't a conspiracy at all. Got a brother who's a pilot. On a cold morning what is the cloud that come out of you're exhaust pipe on ya car? The kettle boiling?

    Contrails (short for "condensation trails") or vapour trails are artificial clouds that are the visible trails of condensed water vapour made by the exhaust of aircraft engines. As the hot exhaust gases cool in the surrounding air they may precipitate a cloud of microscopic water droplets. If the air is cold enough, this trail will comprise tiny ice crystals.
    The wingtip vortices which trail from the wingtips and wing flaps of aircraft are sometimes partly visible due to condensation in the cores of the vortices. Each vortex is a mass of spinning air and the air pressure at the centre of the vortex is very low. These wingtip vortices are not the same as contrails.
    Depending on atmospheric conditions, contrails may be visible for only a few seconds or minutes, or may persist for many hours.

    Hope this helps.


    This is a Quantas Trail over Manly Wharf Brisbane

    Yes, they're an ugly pain Pete... I think I'd like to see the 'airflights for a couple of quid' removed. Can't see the environmental damage being worth the value of cheap flights to Europe.

    Cheers

    from wikipedia

    In 2001, United States Congressman Dennis Kucinich introduced legislation that would have permanently prohibited the basing of weapons in space, and he listed chemtrails as one of a number of exotic weapons that would be banned.[23] Proponents have asserted that because explicit reference to chemtrails was entered by Congressman Kucinich into the congressional record, this constitutes official government acknowledgement of their existence.[19][24] But that bill received an unfavorable evaluation from the United States Department of Defense and died in committee,[25]
