I went to have a look at this website that you linked. (In the post I am replying to).
It is nonsense.
This is the "headline":...and hyperlink:
Chemtrails Produced by Aviation Fuel Laced
SO, the main "point" (I snickered when I wrote "point") is about this
being "laced" into Jet A1 (layman's term, "jet fuel").
Go ahead....read the Wiki article on (I write as 'TMA'). Take your time.......
If you will note, this IS the substance by NASA in rockets
that were launched last month (or was it in March)that went OUT of our
atmosphere......out of the air part of our atmosphere, into space....the ionosphere.
Here, read about the NASA ATREX
In the NASA article they (unfortunately) use a common term, "jet stream". I say 'unfortunately', because most people associate that term with the
stratospheric-level jet stream
....winds, made of air, that occur from the tropopause,
and above....so, 23,000 to 52,000 feet typically (depending on latitude).
(You should read all about it, and grasp the knowledge for future edification).
And, NO!! TMA is not added to Jet A1 aviation fuel!!
Here, these are the specs on Jet A1:
Aviation turbine fuels (jet fuels) are manufactured predominantly from straight run kerosines which normally require further treatment to meet the
There are VERY stringent tests and limits on what can be added to aviation fuels....not only for the most obvious reason (safety, number one), but
because of the way the fuel will perform, and how it will affect the engine components, the fuel pumps, the filters, ALL of the fuel system and
power-plant functions on an airplane.
Here, from Wiki, ALL of the additives in jet fuel:
I don't see TMA listed there.
Finally, a little bit aviation ground school:
this substance (TMA) which as a component includes atoms of a metal (aluminum) where
included in the fuel??
Firstly, it would alter the weight and density substantially....and EVERY airline or corporate pilot would notice!!
Secondly, well....again, this is a metal we are talking about.....and, besides likely clogging the fuel filters, once it got to the engines, where the
combustion temps are in the range of, or exceed, about 2,000°? What happens to aluminum at that temp? The atoms of aluminum would NOT just "come
out in the exhaust".....they would, from the heat, they would tend to deposit on, and coat, the turbine blades. This would lead to engine
Have you heard what happens when a jet accidentally flies through a volcanic cloud? In that case, engine failure happens quickly because even thin
amounts of the volcanic particles, when ingested by the engines, go through th combustion and melt, and then coat the turbine blades.
(A secondary effect is in the compressor turbine section, where they have an erosive quality).
Why Can't Planes Fly Through
OK....? Get it?
