- The following series of three pictures
was sent in by J. Keating of Oregon. The first two photos show the contrails
- "Gale force winds were blowing in
my direction that day, 50-60 mile per hour gusts! The contrails were upwind
from me, so I stayed inside. Once they are in the air, these contrails
do not disperse at all. Instead they become what you see in photo number
- "The entire sky was 'canceled out'
(covered) after about 5 hours of contrails being formed by jets. Thats
a lot of fuel, time, planes, pilots for whatever is going on. This Kodak
digital camera just could not get in tight enough to show the planes though."

- Hi Folks,
- I am writing this afternoon to relate
a very disquieting con trail "spraying" that took place over
northwestern Connecticut and wertern Massachusetts on Thursday, 2-11-99.
- I am a private pilot and have a penchant
for watching everything that moves in the skies above me. This area is
a hotbed of black helicopter activity (but I digress) but on Thursday,
beginning around midmorning, high altitude jets began "painting"
the sky with NON-DISSIPATING contrails.
- I am familiar with the physics involved
in the production of "normal" contrails. The fact that these
contrails do not dissipate leads me to suspect that something of a chemical
nature was being emitted (I use that word politely). Of further curious
interest was the fact that these contrails, after hanging in the sky for
literally hours, metamorphosed into what look like naturally occurring
- If I hadn't made a point of observing
this phenomea for the better part of the day, I would have thought that
these were, in fact, naturally-occurring sirrus in advance of an approaching
- Another curiosity was that the forecast
weather for our area here on Friday called for a partly sunny day with
almost springlike temps of 55-60.
- In actuality, we experienced a day that
resembled a San Francisco type fog, so dense that it felt misty all day
and temps much cooler than predicted. Radio weather forecasters continued
to call for the previously forecast nice weather for the entire morning
(as if they hadn't even looked out their windows to see their error.)
- My familiarity with commercial flight
routes causes me to completely dismiss the possibility that these trails
were caused by commercial jets flying normal commercial flights, I personally
witnessed several jets fly due south for perhaps fifty miles and then turn
90 degrees to the west and continue to paint what I can only surmise is
a surreptitious tic-tac-toe game of who knows what awful substance.
- I know that Jeff is interested in these
stories, and I have taken to the web for some research and am now horrified
to find that these patterns are being sprayed in other locations across
the nation. I think that much more coverage should be given this matter.
I am at your disposal for any assistance I can give.
- PLease e-mail me back if you can point
me in any direction that will not only educate me, but perhaps assemble
some type of forum for redress.

- Jeff, I have been an avid follower on your website,
and have been following the articles on the mysterious contrails. I live
in Albuquerque, New Mexico and have been watching the pattern of contrails,
and their sheer numbers increase steadily since December 1998. Everyday
our skies are streaked with countless contrails and sometimes the aircraft's
are slightly visible, due to the sun reflecting off the aircraft. There
has been an alarming rising in mysterious flu-like symptoms and respiratory
ailments that are unexplained. I myself am a victim of these symptoms
and was told its an unknown viral strain that will just have to be allowed
to run its course. The doctor went on to say that he has seen a number
of people like me and this is the only solution to be given. I will
start photographing these contrails and submit them to you for possible
posting. I hope others are becoming more aware of the unusual frequency
contrails are showing up in our skies, and the connections to outbreaks
of illnesses in their home towns.

- Hi Jeff:
- Saw the posting re: spraying over the 'Albany/rensselaer
county area of New York State'. I live in that area and while there seems
to be a variety of strong flu strains around, there does not seem to be
an extreme level of severe respiratory problems. Having said that, read
below. My father-in-law did observe very unusual flight patterns that left
contrails some two weeks ago.
- He said that while he had not seen any UFOs, he had seen
something he considered very unusual. He said that while he was ice-fishing
on Saratoga Lake the previous Sunday (2/7) he had watched jets go overhead
- He said that what was unusual was that six were crossing
the sky in one direction while five crossed from the opposite direction,
passing each other in flight. This observation dovetails with other recent
reports of a groups of planes methodicly covering areas of sky.
