I don't know about you guys, but this is the first pic i've seen of a tristar with a smokey start up, this bad.

What causes the smokey start up anyway ?

Tri-Star's are noted for their smoky engine startups. The picture above does show it well. I believe it has something to do with oil burnoff? or something like that.

BTW: does dialing 999 in the UK mean the same thing as dialing 911 here in the US?

This a pretty smokey startup, it must have been cold! I think the smoke is uncombusted and vaporized fuel, you get smoke on other aircraft as well, most noteably anything with those wonderful RB-211s. 757s can have a pretty smokey startup, the colder it is outside, the more smoke it seems.

A quote from an Eastern Alirlines official: "The tristar is the most quietest, cleanest airplane in the sky."
What a load of crap.
