AIRLINERS.NET CREW PHOTO SCREENER
Yes, he clearly misidentified both aircraft.
The first one is a 747-400, second is a Delta 767-300.
As he based his entire calculation on the wrong aircraft type (KC-135), his final altitude is completely off and the whole page is simply incorrect. Not quite the military aircraft and its "noxious work of spraying heavy plumes of chemtrails" as suggested.
Thank you very much! I did all the calculations with Boeing 747 wingspan. The resulting altitude is around 9700 m, which seems real.
I think about the reason of this mistake. Probably the author did it intentionally because many people don't notice the difference between the photo and KC-135 plane. He has just wanted the evidence of "chemtrails".
