Look at those two babies go! I love the way they are displaying such power and beauty as they roar across the skies. This is what makes air travel so spectacular and cool. I wish I were on a plane right now.  Smokin cool

I love contrail pics!!!



Its better to be on the ground wishing you were in the air than be in the air wishing you were on the ground. Fly safe!

Don't feel bad Trick', the one you posted is just as stunning.  Big thumbs up I love the dark sky photos with the contrails.

It's pictures like the ones in this thread that make me believe the Wright Brother's birthday should be a national holiday.  Smile

Contrails are so mysterious, and very cool!!!! Just need a long lense to catch them...

But photographing a contrail from a higher aircraft is cooler - especially with the land/clouds/ocean in the back...  Smokin cool

Fanofjets, that top photo is not contrails, it Bobby Younkin flying an airshow in a Lear 23 with a smoke system on the engines.
