What a help are those "Navigation Displays" for air to air photography :) EK A330 on her way to Europe. We were at FL390, while EK crossed us 1000 feet above at FL400

Great Shot!!! Looks like oil is burning in the engines and makes the contrail grey...

Yeah, indeed, a great shot. But I´m also wondering the whole time why the contrails are grey and not white.
In case of get to know the reg, I once read the comment of a photo here, and I guess the pilots were asking the controller for the plane. And due to the matter of fact that every plane is in contact with some controller it´s in my opinion quite possible to ask them for the frequemcy of another aircraft to get their reg. Or just ask the controller.
Please correct me if I told smth wrong here.

Nicely framed picture with an interesting element: the contrail. I don't think it is smoke, must be because of the light of that moment.

Amazing view, but am just wondering on what's behind it, is it an engine smoke? or just simply a trailing vortex, if so, why is it black? mother nature will be getting mad at it...
