First of all I'd like to state that I personally don't care much for the terms 'believers' or 'debunkers'. For me they describe two opposing,
entrenched views. I do however have acquaintances who fit both these descriptions. I am neither.
My housemate, who is a firm proponent of the chemtrail theories, all of them, from geo-engineering to the spraying of vaccines(!).
We decided to spend an afternoon out back of our house and watch jets go over. We live in a rural area, under a very busy air corridor. It was a
relatively clear day, mostly blue sky with scattered cloud and some overcast. We observed jets through binoculars and a telescope at various altitudes
for 4/5 hours, most were at high altitude, a few at lower altitudes. We didn't keep count but almost all the high altitude aircraft left contrails, a
small number didn't and I suspect these were at relatively lower altitudes. Of the contrails we observed, about 75% remained in the sky longer than
20 mins, of that 75% about half of them lingered most of the afternoon, either slowly spreading and gradually dissipating to overcast, or staying as
straight cohesive lines and drifting with the wind.
All the aircraft we observed were, or seemed to be, commercial jets of the 2 or 4 engine type, we spotted no military type aircraft. All the contrails
we observed were in line with the engines, all of them beginning well aft of the aircraft, there were no trails that seemed to be streaming directly
'out' of the actual engines. There were no observable auxiliary trails. My housemate contends that all persistent contrails are 'chemtrails',
including the trails that stayed in straight lines and didn't dissipate.
My observations that afternoon lead me to surmise, that if the chemtrail phenomenon is real then either:
A: Something is being mixed with AC fuel.
B: There are spraying nozzles near the exhaust outlets of the engines.
Conclusion A is the most common claim I've heard. I have researched a little about jet engine filters and they don't allow much in the way of
impurities in the fuel, so if something is being mixed into the fuel it has to be in very small amounts.
Conclusion B means that the aircraft is carrying, in separate tanks, whatever is being sprayed. This means that the spraying is either pilot activated
or done automatically eg when the aircraft reaches a certain altitude.
Of course people may bring up the points that not all the aircraft we observed were civilian. However, it can be reasonably argued that they couldn't
have all been military or covert flights either. The fact remains that most if not all the high altitude aircraft we observed did leave trails, and
that if spraying is being conducted it must also involve commercial aircraft, and that conclusions A and B must be considered.
Conclusion A is a problem. If something is being mixed with AC fuel it must in very small amounts. Jet engines have fuel filters that are 2 microns.
The fuel is also filtered whilst being pumped into the tanks of the aircraft. If there are additives how can they have any impact in such tiny
volumes? The distances involved means that a very small amount of material is being spread over a huge area, how can this work? It is possible to
calculate the fuel capacity of say a 747 relative to the amount of impurities the filters will let through to the engines, I haven't myself, but I
wouldn't expect the figures to be by any means large, if somebody wants to try it please do.
Conclusion B makes more sense to me. There are problems though. Weight for instance, carrying extra tanks will mean less passengers/cargo for
instance. If the spraying is done automatically the pilots would at least be aware of the existence of auxiliary tanks, even if they don't know what
is in them. And if the spraying is pilot activated then when is one the thousands that must be involved going to come forward? Also the filling of the
tanks, this is where we should see some hard evidence, we should be able to witness this ourselves at the airport or at least have some testimony from
ground crew or people working on the flightline.
Personally I'm not convinced that the chemtrail phenomenon is, at least to the extent that some people say, a real one. But I'm not here to
'debunk' either. I remain open to the argument, and I invite anyone to share their thoughts about my observations and conclusions. Thanks for
