Determining Aircraft

Tue Mar 26, 2013 11:53 am

I would like to determine the aircraft at this photo: http://www.holmestead.ca/chemtrails/digital.html. They say it is KC-135, but overlay of the photo and the sketch of this plane are different. Could anybody help me?
Sorry for my bad English.

Same here.

Yes, he clearly misidentified both aircraft.

The first one is a 747-400, second is a Delta 767-300.

As he based his entire calculation on the wrong aircraft type (KC-135), his final altitude is completely off and the whole page is simply incorrect. Not quite the military aircraft and its "noxious work of spraying heavy plumes of chemtrails" as suggested.  Yeah sure

Thank you very much! I did all the calculations with Boeing 747 wingspan. The resulting altitude is around 9700 m, which seems real.
I think about the reason of this mistake. Probably the author did it intentionally because many people don't notice the difference between the photo and KC-135 plane. He has just wanted the evidence of "chemtrails".

Hello people,

Not to hi-jack this thread, but I have a doubt about an aircraft, it actually concerns my own pic:

Digging in Google, I found this registration # (which I'm sure about) belonging to a Cessna 210.

Am I right or is this a different type of Cessna?

Cheers in advance!

Sorry to reply to myself, but I just noticed that the Cessna type has been adjusted to 182F.
Is this correct?

Cheers!

It doesn't look like a C210 from this angle. Also, I have 100% faith in the editors
