I'm aware that it is much colder up there than it is on the ground. I wasn't trying to say it was 100+ degrees at aircraft altitude, in fact I said
I didn't know at all what the temp was. I'm sorry if my statement came out wrong.
Now, normally on hot days such as this one (again I have no clue what the temp is at aircraft heights), aircraft contrails dissipate rather quickly. I
am not sure if today it's nippley up there or what, lol, but I can actually look out my window right now and see an aircraft from the airport in the
distance, and it's contrail is dissipating at a quick rate. It's 107 degrees outside just here on land.
I know that these photos aren't really proving anything at all, but everyone whom lives in town that I've shown these two find these highly strange.
Like I said, I sent the photographs at the time to George Knapp and he found them strange as well.
I really didn't describe it properly either. (sorry I am a newbie on here and to forums in general actually. I'm usually just a reader, not a poster
Today is my first day joining. ). The contrails that were created, seemed to originate from 4 different jets that didn't appear to be commercial
jets at all. The planes would fly from one end of the valley, turn around and then make another sweep, and then back again. I guess I should have
explained that, and why I see this as so anomalous. These contrails (at least the ones in this criss cross pattern) were laid out at almost the same
time, or within minutes of each other as the 4 planes created them.
Anyhow, I won't belabor this anymore. It was a strange week that week, and they are strange photographs. I wish there were more folks from Vegas to
see this on this thread, so they could understand the location and proximity of the base and airport...and where this photo was taken. I think if you
lived here and looked up at the sky as much as I do, you would understand why this is slightly strange. It has only happened maybe twice since this
event that I have witnessed, so it really is a rare event.
