It's a great shot, but how come the contrails aren't coming out of the engines?

Yes, why are the contrails not eminating from the back of the engines? Is that just a phenomenon?

Also, why does the contrail seem to pass over the top of the tailplanes and not beneath them?

Quoting Sean377 (Reply 4):

Apart from the typical engine contrails, given the right circumstances, contrails might be generated by aerodynamic causes, in a way quite similar to the condensation over the wings we are used to see in approaches of take off from humid airports:

The 'stars' (ice) really made this photo for me over others, very magical feeling to it. Quite the honor to be able to upload to the same site where that kind of photo is displayed

I think it only seems to be that way, as you said. The contrail passes underneath the tailwing, but it can't be seen due to the reflection of the tailwing being brighter than the contrail.* You can actually see a little bit of the contrail below the leading edges of the tailwing, better seen on the portside.

On the trailing edge side, you can see how the shadow cast by the tailwing obscures the contrail, thereby disabling it from breaking the light coming from above and creating that rainbow-ish phenomenon. You can actually see the shadow in its entirety if you take a close look.

Thanks for my new amazing wallpaper, Jeffwell!
