Someone has a program which shows altitudes and locations of air traffic somewhere, i will try and remember who it is
I think that might be me, Oz.
For the OP (and everyone else reading who lives in North America) you can visit this site
to view air traffic
live in your area.
A few tips on usage: Depending on where you live, select an airport nearby. In the United States, ALL the major airports with passenger service will
begin with the letter 'K', and usually followed by the same three-letter code you see on your baggage tags when you fly. The website will interpret
for you too...just type in the cityor airport name, and follow the instructions.
Another thing to keep in mind --- the contrails (and yes...that is ALL they are, despite the breathless nonsense put out by the likes of people like
'Carnicorn') ... the contrails only form at higher altitudes. SO, just because you may live near
a major airport, or under the
"flight path" (routes airplanes fly when landing or taking off), you won't be seeing contrails from airplanes arriving and departing that airport.
You are seeing airplanes cruising by, at altitude, with destinations hundreds of miles away from where you are.
The website info should be self-explanatory. The radar targets are tagged with data blocks indicating the airline, flight number, altitude and
groundspeed...and whether they are climbing or descending at any given moment.
If needed, I can write an interpretation on this thread.
Here's an extra bit, for more advanced users: The high-altitude Jet Airway structure is available for viewing and download
This is a source for pilots, so it's more technical.
Just like the Flight Aware site, put in an airport four-letter ID. An aviation chart will appear...similar to the home page default. This is a VFR
(Visual Flight Rules) chart, for low altitude navigation purposes.
Along the top, in white tabs, you will see "Enroute H-XX". Those are what you want to click, to see the high altitude Jet Airways.
Once you know where the Airways are located, you can compare what you see in the sky by plotting them over any map of your local area you choose to
The results will depend on your ability with computers, and your willingness to realize that "chemtrails" as shown in the photos in this thread, do
not exist. They are simply contrails, being mistaken for something else, because of a persistent bunch of baloney that predominates the Internet.
Deny that sort of ignorance.
