ITs not a very good spy plane.

Looks like a B.U.F.F (big ugly fat f**ker) aka a B-52. Shot today? maybe some kind of Veteran's day flyover.

I saw that plane fly over today. I thought about taking a photo of it. Mine wouldn't have turned out as good as yours did though.

Aarrghhhh!!! Chemtrails.

Did the sky turn slowly white and mysteriously cloudy after that plane flew past?

I never saw such a big airplane out your way before. Some friends and I were talking about military aircraft fly-overs of the Terlingua area. They informed me that they fly out of Dyess AFB, near Abilene. Evidently, there is a training route that they fly that brings them out there.

Neat that the shadow of the plane is making the contrails look like they start at different places, but the right ones just have no direct sun light hitting them right behind the engines do to the tails shadow.

Not a BUFF and not military. That's a widebody commercial aircraft, look at the tail and the placement of the wings, and the paint job. My guess would be some sort of Airbus, second choice, older 747.

Air Force One leaving Ft Hood.

Bob from Athens said...

Vapour trails are visible trails of condensed water vapour made by the exhaust of aircraft engines. No chemicals involved. I agree with Bob O, not a buff. I spent several years stationed at March AFB, we had bunches of buff's.

The other day we saw something very similar over Sacramento. The weirdest part was that the contrail suddenly stopped. I imagine that was because it had left the air causing the contrail but the sight would have sent those that believe the theories into a tail spin.

Insofar as H2O is a "chemical", yeah. That's a chemical trail ... we all leave them but they don't always photograph so well.

Nice picture.

We were in the Cedar Springs area and this huge black plane swooped down really low. It was so low I thought it would run into a mountain. It looked all black and had no sound until it passed. It was really weird, tried to get a picture, but my camera refused to work.
