Chemtrails from airliners lol

A few days ago many airliners were flying over my house landing in San Antonio. A thunderstorm diverted the usual flight pattern. I said watch this airplane spray us which it did when flying near a cloud that provided the moisture for a chemtrail. The plane was then in a clear sky and the pilot turned off the spray! Those sneaky devils!

I'm a couple of miles from the old Carswell SAC base, which is still occasionally active as a joint reserve training airbase. So it's pretty common to see lingering vapor trails in various shapes. Being mostly young men who really do behave like Maverick and Goose in Top Gun, the local pilots occasionally create giant X-shapes and other figures in the sky. Pretty amusing.

You got your tin-foil hat on, and are you living in a faraday cage? The government vapor trail thing was a popular conspiracy theory a few years ago, I thought that died out. FWIW: The theory being spread was clouds were being seeded with very fine particles of aluminum oxide to reflect sunlight away from the Earth (prevent global warming), and the aluminum oxide would eventually fall to the ground, get into the food chain, and cause health problems in humans. I'd be worried about Google and the other internet big-wigs watching me than I would cloud seeding.

Vapor trails are normal when a plane at high altitude goes through a cloud or a high-humidity area. Cloud 'seeding' was tried many years ago to make rain in dry areas, it doesn't really work and is not done any more AFAIK.

I’m being sarcastic when it’s dry in the atmosphere the cruising altitude airliners leave no vapor trail behind. I find the chem-trail conspiracies amusing, especially on Coast to Coast AM. The Shadow People is another one I find crazy.

A good chemical dispersion pilot will release the chemicals in clouds so they can't be seen, but sometimes they screw up and release them in clear sky.

Wonder what the conspiracy theorists would say to "chemtrails" if they saw a jet ON THE GROUND leaving contrails while taxiing out with air temps @ -35F? Very cool, literally and figuratively. Downside was being the last of 24 jets one morning and I couldn't see much in front of me.

What would you say if the airliner suddenly stopped making them?

Contrails are how the Germans knew we were coming and how we knew they were coming to meet us.

I went outside one day and there was a very strong odor of kerosene in the air, and a plane that had a strange exhaust plume coming from it. It turns out that they had an emergency and where dumping fuel to make a landing.

There are no menthol chemtrails though.

C2CAM is a pale shell of itself. Art Bell was just the right nut for the job.

When coast to coast had some woman on the phone calling from the future that was it Too many quacks trying to sell their miracle cure all pills. I listen to the BBC it is so boring I fall asleep. I turn on NPR when I need to watch paint dry.

The British Open was on NBC from at least 3 am to after 3 PM and I slept through it playing from 8 am until just before Lowry winning.
