Weird sky.

Just was in my backyard and noticed these strange aeroplane trails. Five or six jets flying randomly and leaving those trails that do not disappear after a while. Most of them over my city. I saw them before, but never really thought about it. After quick Internet research I've learnt that they are some sort of chemtrails. I'm not some conspiracy type, but it's strange that it started in 2000, just after we joined NATO. What you guys think, is there reason to be worried?

No. But to be safe, make a hat from aluminum foil, so they can't read your mind from those nefarious airplanes...

>chemtrails Oh dear god not this stupid [censored]. They aren't chemtrails they are contrails left behind by jets. The fact that there was six of them is a coincidence. Don't turn into that woman that thought spraying vinegar at the sky with a squirt bottle would make them dissipate.

I'm not paranoid its just that there is no reason for military jet flights in this area. At least not that I can see. Aviano base is close so they probably have some sort of flight training.

The trails are condensation from the jet engines. The rate of dissipation depends on the atmospherics: wind, temperature, relative humidity. Some days they dissipate quickly, others, not so much. There are lots of commercial flights over your part of Europe. If you think they're anything other than ordinary, and particularly if you think they're spraying chemicals, then yes, you're paranoid....

If the government was putting out chemtrails why would they make them visible for people to question. They would make them clear so no one would ever know.

It is just like the condensation that comes out of your car on a cold morning. But at extreme rates since it is a jet and not a car engine!

Yeah. The Russians invaded the Ukraine, so the jets are up and flying round. I see it in my area whenever there is a dust-up somewhere.

I just saw something on TV a couple days ago about "chemtrails"...the claim is that the gummint is doing it to inhibit rainfall, for what reason they did not say. Fool, please... crackmeup

Croatia, eh? Haven't seen many here from there. Combustion produces water vapor. As soon as that hot, moist air flying out of the tailcone hits very cold air at 33,000 ft. or so, it quickly freezes forming ice. If there is an abundance of upper level moisture, it persists. If not, it quickly evaporates. So, sometimes you see them long after the plane has moved on and sometimes you never see them at all. What you should watch out for are sun dogs.....

"It's normal, you're crazy, you nutty nutter, I hope I don't get nutty nutter cooties tin foil nutter. Stop being nutty with your tin foil crazy nut" wink If this appears abnormal or nothing more than pretty cloud formations, then you're nuts and require re-edcuation camp. Everything is fine, go back to sleeeeep. Scientists! Concensus!! Mammatus! Shelf!!

Don't tell Jesse Ventura. He'll be "investigating" this and we'll see his results on Conspiracy Theory.

" Jet fuel additives are always extensively evaluated and tested, as anything added to the fuel could adversely affect engine performance and safety (metals, in particular, are something you don't want to add to jet fuel; even trace amounts can have disastrous effects on the thermal stability of the fuel). For this reason, producers hew to the jet fuel standards set by ASTM International (formerly known as the American Society for Testing and Materials), known as the ASTM D1655, and/or the Defence Standard 91-91. Jet A must meet the ASTM D1655 specifications, while Jet A-1 has to meet the specifications for Defence Standard 91-91, ASTM D1655, and the specifications of the International Air Transport Association (IATA) Guidance Material (Kerosine Type), NATO Code F-35. (5) Jet A-1 is a high-quality fuel. If it doesn't pass purity and quality tests, it is sold off to ground-based consumers rather than being used in jets. (6) Currently, the ASTM D1655 specifications allow for the following additives to be added to jet fuel (often these are added in extremely small quantities, measurable in parts per million): Antioxidants to prevent gumming. These are usually based on alkylated phenols. Antistatic agents to prevent sparking. Stadis 450 is the most widely-used agent, and is speculated by some chemtrail researchers to be the source of the barium allegedly present in chemtrails (see, for instance, this video). Biocides to inhibit microbial growth in fuel systems. Fungi and bacteria can pose serious problems to planes. In 2009, Australian airline Qanta grounded all three of its Airbus A380s due to fuel tank leaks reportedly caused by fungus. Currently, only two biocides are approved for use in jet engines: Kathon FP1.5 Microbiocide and Biobor JF. Corrosion inhibitors Fuel system icing inhibitor agents. As jets reached higher altitudes and stayed at them for longer periods, ice in the fuel became a deadly hazard. In 1958, a B-52D crashed in South Dakota due to ice blockage in the fuel system, killing 5 of the 6 men on board. Studies indicated fuel icing was the probable cause of over 200 previous aircraft losses. (7) Beginning in the '60s, anti-icing agents were added to military jet fuel. I find it very interesting that it took the military 20 years and over 200 crashes to figure out that fuel icing could be a problem. Metal deactivators to mitigate the effects of trace metals. The only allowable deactivator is N,N’-disalicylidene 1,2-propanediamine, and it is seldom used. Aside from the Stadis 450, which we'll examine in another post, note that there isn't anything on this list that would account for the metals thought to be in chemtrails (barium, aluminum, titanium, and strontium). Nor does the fuel itself contain them. But it must be noted that aviation fuel emissions do contain toxic pollutants. The combustion of jet fuel during flight causes aircraft engines to emit carbon dioxide, nitrogen oxides (in small amounts), carbon monoxide, sulfur gases, and soot. (8) Jet emissions have also been found to contain particles of zinc, beryllium, lead, vanadium, and copper. (9) Note that these are heavy metals, unlike the alleged chemtrail metals. I ask you, how is this any better than what's supposedly being found in chemtrails? In 2007, the Discovery Channel program Best Evidence examined chemtrails. A team led by Dr. Gregory W. Davis at Kettering University's Automotive Engine Research Laboratory tested five gallons of randomly selected jet fuel from a Flint airport, running it through a small jet turbine. They ran an array of tests on the fuel itself and the emissions, looking for aluminum (the metal most frequently mentioned in connection with chemtrails). They found none. They did find some sulfur in the emissions, though." http://swallowingthecamel.blogspot.com/2012/06/chemtrails-i-jets.html
