USA Today runs a weekly column by United Airlines 777 Captain Meryl Getline in their travel section.
Today, one of the questions regarding fuel dumping, and Capt. Getline made the following statement:
Fuel isn't dumped the way I think many people imagine. It is sprayed through nozzles at the end of each wing and then vaporizes. When I've witnessed it, the streams appeared white. Have a look for yourself. I found this picture at airliners.net, a wonderful resource for aviation information.

Obviously, she is well aware of a-net...anyone know if she's an active member?
It's great to see A-net getting some mainstream publicity like this!
