A month or so ago I shot this aircraft overflying. I didn't see anything special until I checked the photo later.
The contrails seem to come from the wings. Also note the rainbow effect.
Probably has to do with ice crystals?
I can't remember seeing this before.

there was another post somewhere(might have been elsewhere)on a similar topic,I'll try to dig it out.I believe it's to do with atmospheric conditions but I'll have to check.
Out of interest,what focal length was that taken at?

Contrails can form in two ways, from the engines, and from the cooling process--the air flowing over the wings. When the cooling is sufficient enough to saturate the air, you get a "dynamic contrail," which looks like what you've got there. It usually dies fast in the plane's wake.

Oh my god, I think they...... uh............... no it can't be............ just maybe............ CHEMTRAILS!
The photo is probably edited. Look at the "contrails" and they don't even come out of the engines. The true contrails are formed a short distance away from the engines exhaust nozzle, not beside it. They also generally come out in the same axis line of the engines, not to the side. There's nothing strange on that picture. Except, obviously, the two thinner lines which are chemical trails put in the aircraft by some dudes to help with the government conspiracy, and blah blah........
Now seriously, nothing but a photo edit.

How is that a photo edit? It seems to me that everything lines up pretty well for dynamic contrail, as FSPilot747 talks about. It makes sense that a dynamic contrail would come from the inboard wing, where there is the least disturbance, and then it can even be seen where the jet wake comes into the picture, where the contrail gets choppy on the inside.

You're absolutely correct Meister. I missed the engine trails forming near the disturbances. I had thought that if there are no engine generated trails there should be no wing generated ones, therefore it's edited. Good observation, I'll take back my previous comment on it being a photo edit.

More than likely, the vortices coming off the wings interfere with the jet exhaust and mostly expand the contrail out so it may appear to have more than one source, being the engine. Other than engine pressure, that is one of those reasons.
