Hi all, I just spent a very enjoyable 10 mins laughing my head off at the aircraft section of your image database. If you really want this subject to be taken seriously you have to start showing people some real evidence.
Photos like "Compare: One with, one without" are a ridiculous basis for an argument. The obvious difference in the aircraft altitude accounts for the lack of a contrail from the lower a/c, you'd have to some kind of idiot not to realise that a/c do not contrail at that kind of level. The same can be said for "Culprit taking a supper break" HE'S AT A MUCH LOWER LEVEL, how hard can this be!!
"30000? NOT": Why not? How good a judge of a/c altitude are you, this guy could easily be in the medium to high twenties, possible 30 odd.
But, and this is the showstopper: "IBERIA CHEMPLANE". You actually expect to be taken seriously when you accuse a company such as Iberian airlines (not just a cargo carrier) of ordering their 747's to spray chemicals over the USA.
I could do this for every picture, but i'm bored now!
I have some fantastic photos of aircraft flying in formation at high level, each one leaving a contrail behind. They were taken from my seat in the number 4 aircraft. I dread to think what you guys would think if you saw them.
Please, stop wasting your camera film on such shots, they just make you look like a bunch of nuts.
Yours (hiding under the desk)
