Yellow Tire Smoke?

Saw this photo in the new shots and I was wondering where the yellow tire smoke comes from? Is it just some sort of optical illusion or a byproduct of the tire compound? Not all of the smoke is yellow so I don't think I'm seeing things or that it is something from a filter on the camera. Maybe this is common, but I don't recall seeing it before, not that I usually go around studying picture of tire smoke.  Smile

MMMMM well after hours of analysis the following results have surfaced:

1. Landing competition.
2. Landed on an exploding golf ball.
3. Pollen on the runway.
4. Lav flushing agent has been updated and was dumped on arrival.
5. New NASA orbiter returning from MARS.

Sorry best I could do on short notice!!!

Freshly painted taxiway lines?

Though the golf ball theory is also an interesting possibility...

I must really be bored today.....wouldn't that have required an in air tire change sort of like a NASCAR pitstop at 39,000'! I'd think alot of that "top protection" would go away on take-off!!! Oh this leads my mind to another concept.......Trojans on the runway and it burst  bigthumbsup

But wouldnt landing burn off more as the tires arent as hot on take off as they are on landing?

Looks like touchdown was right on the numbers, which look fairly freshly painted, so my vote would be that it is the reflective dust that gets dusted over the top layer of the paint while it is still wet.

Doesn't look like that. It looks to me more like a perfect touchdown, right in the TDZ, on the blocks.

Looks to me like the dust originates from the centerline stripe, but why would it be yellow, who knows...

It's simple: if you look at the picture, you'll see an exit to a taxiway just behind the TDZ.

That's the only logical conclusion. Paint dust from freshly painted taxiway lines.

Why wouldn't they close the runway to landing/maybe take-offs if the paint is wet. Wouldn't the planes landing make a mess of the lines if the paint is wet?

The same as you shouldnt eat yellow snow  silly 

I guess everyone agrees its the new runway markings, although why isnt the smoke white because most runway markings are white.

The Paint used on Taxipaths & Runways are Quick drying.The closure is only for the Painting Job.Adequate Drying time is provided before Ops resume.

Touchdown Zone seems more probable, If the paint were wet, or if it were the dust wouldn't this dramatically reduce the friction on the tyres? ... longer stoppage distance?

Sorry if that seems silly

Not if the Painted surface contacted only one Tire.Remember there are many more.
The Paint dust is dried paint that accumulates post spraying operation.
