No I guess not... I must be dumb cause when I ask what chemicals make red smoke I get lectures on light dispersion through white clouds...
Hmmmm Well thank God for the Military... they don't try to evade the question.
This is a purple smoke grenade, used during a military training exercise. Typical colored smoke is like a normal white smoke bomb, with a dye released into the smoke.

KEWL!!! Well so much for getting straight answers to simple questions on ATS. I see nothing mentioned about refracted sunlight where I was looking
Very Pretty for Warfare
So... the Air Force has all kinds of recipes for colored smoke...
They also have smoke dispensers on Air Planes during Air Shows to leave colored smoke trails.
That smoke does not come through the engine... so why are you assuming chemtrails are produced through the engine?
The pesticide planes have external sprayers...
The 'vortex study' planes have external sprayers...
Don't see why its so hard to understand a simple change of WHAT is coming out of those sprayers is the only difference
