So its amazing that this kind of pic would actually be claimed to be a chemtrail plane in 2017 since we know what the ballast tanks are truly for

Center of gravity testing. They have to know how the aircraft reacts if they load it wrong, and put too much weight fore or aft. They shift water around the ballast tanks to move the center of gravity around.
According to these articles, which I swear I am not making up, what apparently happened was that the crew of a Russian military cargo jet had stolen some cows in Siberia and was flying them home when the cows became upset, perhaps because there was no in-flight movie.
So the cows stampeded, and the crew, fearing that the plane would crash, opened the cargo door and let the cows run out of the plane at an altitude of 30,000 feet, which is somewhat in excess of the Recommended Safe Falling Distance for Cows of 1.3 inches. So you had these cows raining down on the Sea of Japan, and one of them, unfortunately, failed to land on George Steinbrenner. But it did allegedly strike the Japanese fishing boat, which sank. The fishermen all survived, although I am betting that they had an unpleasant talk with their insurance agent.
So this isnt a chemtrail plane because theres ONE alternate explanation for a bunch of tanks in a large jet?
