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...

Diesel powered aircraft... ;)

A visitor from United States posted Sun July 23, 2006:
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.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sun July 23, 2006:
Horrible Contrail! Lovely Shot!

A visitor from Germany posted Sun July 23, 2006:
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.

A visitor from Canada posted Sat July 22, 2006:
Nice shot. Talk about dirty contrails :-D

A visitor from Brazil posted Sat July 22, 2006:
Just... perfect!

A visitor from United States posted Sat July 22, 2006:
What is the explanation for the gray contrails?

A visitor from United States posted Sat July 22, 2006:
Thats an awfully dark contrail!

A visitor from Switzerland posted Sat July 22, 2006:
Hoppla! Congrats Chris.


A visitor from Germany posted Sat July 22, 2006:
Great Shot!!! Looks like oil is burning in the engines and makes the contrail grey...

A visitor from United States posted Fri July 21, 2006:
Great shot! But you didn't tell us @ which FL she was.
