Chemtrails

Somehow an outfit called Look-Up.org.uk posted on my wifes Facebook yesterday. Turns out that this is a UK chemtrail website - I was under the impression that this nonsense was confined to the USA but this bunch are making wild accusations naming airlines that are supposedly spraying the chemicals.Flybe is named as being the biggest offender 'they had the aircraft converted by Evergreen'. There was a poor quality picture of an A320 pylon drains - when told what they were he could not believe that aircraft could have leaks.What really surprised me was the number of paranoid nutters that seem to believe this absolute bullshit. Other airlines named were BA,Lufthansa and Air France - why they have not sued this bunch I do not know. After today it will be more difficult as the libel laws change tomorrow.

Are you calling my beloved sister a paranoid nutter? Despite flying longhaul at least twice a year and shorthaul about six times a year, all for leisure, she is a 'green' and campaigns in true NIMBY style against extra runway capacity in the south-east (where she lives), has flown non-stop from London to Sydney, although she says that the aircraft 'hovered' over Hong Kong for a while, and knows that chemtrails are part of a plot by multiple governments to control the populations.

Did I say paranoid nutter?

Capetonian - they really have not made up their tiny minds as to what exactly the purpose of this is.They are collecting hair samples -which have 'higher levels of barium than there should be'There seemingly is another type of spraying - fibres -what they do is a little vague. Dont worry about your sister - there have been worse cases than her -do you not remember a certain Air Marshal who believed in fairies?

Those two guys I met in England who said that over Christmas they could get jobs driving trucks airside at Heathrow - earned a fortune on Dec 26th - they said - told me they saw large cylinders marked "toxic - for airspray only" being strapped to wings just inside inboard engines on a 747. Mind you they also said the plane had Pan Am livery......

The problem with the chemtrail crowd is that they've also believed for years that the NSA has been secretly recording their phonecalls and spying on them through their webcams...

So why don't they just stick a piece of Elastoplast over the camera lens? Or is that too technical?

When a family came over to look at my apartment (to rent it), the lady asked if the planes fly low around here and whether or not i've seen them spray anything.

I just rolled my eyes ....


Then she asked if the high voltage powerlines just a few hundred feet away were causing any disturbances in my sleep pattern.

again....

Sorry Twotter, I had forgotten the bacofoil. Do you find a beret or a balaclava the most efficient design?

One recently posted a picture of the ballast tanks in position for a test flight, from the size of cabin I would think an NG 737 or A320 family, and said that this was how they did chemtrails.

After several messages trying to explain exactly what it was and why it was there I think I started to get through but plenty of his friends were certain I was being paid to correct his misconceptions

WHO | World Health Organization

The WHO review of the literature shows no consistent links between HV lines and health effects, however some areas need further research. The WHO gives a guideline exposure limit of 5 000 V/m to electric fields, and also states that living under an HV line gives a field strength of 10 000 V/m


..just enough to worry a worrier!

I was hoping that we would get at least one of the believers to post something on here to give us a bit of light entertainment.

You can larf The wind did for our television aerial. I'm not a natural for clambering about on a roof, so decided to try one in the loft.

Went up there, saw the glint of the metallised thermal insulation (in a Tudor house, but that's another story) and remembered that we are thus insulated against mind control from outer space. Insulates well from Sudbury TV transmitter, too.

There's now a little aerial peeking through the window in the guest bedroom. No chemtrails visible, though.

bcgallacher, how could you think any different?


Why, only on Saturday afternoon I saw a Flybe Q400 vapour trailing its way across SE London at 20000 or so. I now have a headache which is nothing whatsoever to do with the seven pints I drank in the Dog and Bull earlier this evening...


Incidentally, I got harangued at Duxford a couple of years ago by one of these chemtrail loonies - arrrrrgggghhhh!

Just tell them the chemtrails are in fact a cover for something far more sinister.......

If this stuff is being sprayed about there must be traces of it still lingering when the next airliner comes by and there would be evidence of it in cabin air filters. Just write to your favourite airline and ask for used filters for your analysis..... this should bring an interesting response.

We did that in our fight against the Chemtrailers back in 2000*.

Actually, we were a bit naughty, even Danny had some fun with them. But then they started threatening legal action, so we backed off, kind of.


* Can't really remember the actual year, but it was a long time ago.

I've watched some of the videos on t'Tube.

One had a high-altitude plane changing colour as it crossed the sky & claimed that this proved the 'aircraft' was in fact a hologram hiding a new kind of sprayer!
