Pic #1- Two 767s
These are two 767s doing flight tests to see if the 767 had any wake turbulence issues when converted to a tanker. It would be bad if the receiver came up behind the tanker to refuel and found out the wake turbulence was so bad that they couldn't connect.
Pic #2- Gulfstream 1
Not one of these things are capable of spraying. They are all sampling instruments that take air IN, and analyze it. They aren't capable of spraying.
Pic #3- NKC-135
This is the only one they got right as a "sprayer". Too bad it's only flown on one airplane, and that airplane flies out of Edwards. It DOES spray, but it sprays other airplanes to see how they handle icing. It's removed unless it's flying a spraying mission. It's an NKC-135E in this picture. That nozzle attaches to the boom, and sprays water on the other plane as it flies in close formation with it. That particular aircraft has been replaced with an NKC-135R now that does the same mission.
I'm not going to comment on the clouds, because there are people that know them much better than me, and are in a better place to comment than I am. As for the rest, I suggest you study aviation and flight routes, etc.

Broken contrails: notice that the large persistent contrail in the first photo is broken. Some claim that a broken contrail means it's not condensation but a substance that was intermittently sprayed. Actually this phenomenon has been shown to be the result of the fact that the atmosphere is not a uniform medium, but is instead a turbulent patchwork of intermingling pockets, layers, and strata containing air with different temperatures, wind speeds, and levels of humidity.
