Youre not in New Zealand are you?

I am.

Recently the editor of the local Community Newspaper was sent a photograph of a contrail that had stopped and started, this, the writer said, PROVED that it was subversive spraying of mind altering substances because it is common knowledge that ordinary aircraft contrails are always constant and unbroken, and asked for my opinion ( knowing that I had some aviation experience I might add - not that I am some extra-terrestial with knowledge of what is happening ! )

I replied that the stopping and starting was comfort to me that it was a genuine aircraft contrail, and went on to explain how contrails do in fact stop and start for a variety of reasons, rising air currents, different engine thrust, climbing, descending etc. etc. whereas a high altitude "crop duster" couldn't possible select a required target by stopping and starting the effluent to achieve a specific result, and would just carpet bomb the whole district until the stuff ran out. IMHO

The Conspiracy Theorists are alive and well in NZ.

You really linked to a video that lasts more than 1 1/2 hours... What a waste of good drinking time.

I can confirm contrails are not caused by UFOs.

I know, I am a UFO driver.

At least I was once reported as such by the august body known as The Lancashire UFO Society (monogrammed tin foil helmets I imagine).

That'll teach me not to do phase 2 VIDs off Blackpool prom at sunset with dodgy lights and a malfunctioning left reheat.

There is one main Chemtrail site that I am banned for life plus 400 years I believe. Those folks just have no sense of humor what so ever, that they are aware of.

Somebody from here, can't remember who now, joined the Chemtrailers site and then lied his buttocks off telling them how he sprayed all kinds of nasty stuff into air, they were eating it up. Then he told them the truth and they wouldn't believe him. They bought off on the lies, but refused to believe the truth.

If you could see them they must have had their stealth mode turned off.As you know they got all their technology and mind control spray formula from the UFO they have in area 51 in Nevada.

The mind control sprays do work because every time I see a chemtrail I suddenly have the urge to give work the flick and book a holiday and sit up there at 35000 feet drinking champagne.

Got to go now and have lunch with Elvis,the second gunman from the grassy knoll and the film director who produced the moon landings from the sound stage at the same secret facility in area 51:E

Not only when it's cold "up there" but also when it's cold "down here".

Dress well, go to the airfield at Uranium City, Sask., on a really cold day, stand on the apron, and watch the aircraft come and go.

Notice the "chemtrails" as they taxi in. Yup.

Yes, of course your suspicion is spot on. Worse, though, than your visible contrails are the variety that flourish but can't be seen. They may be above or below condensation altitude, but all the same there they are. Where? There! Always. These are not "contrails"; just "trails". But still, they are concealed chemtrails.

Chemtrails!

What - No explainations?

Having just read through all previous posts to this thread I find it incredible that not one of you has tried to explain to the uninitiated just how a CONTRAIL forms. Let me have a go.

Water vapour in the earth's atmosphere is always present and is usually referred to as humidity. When humidity reaches 100% the air is saturated. The amount of water vapour that air can contain varies with temperature and pressure. If air at 100% humidity is cooled then some of the water vapour condences into water droplets to produce cloud or fog. The formation of the water droplets is assisted if there is present miniscule particles called condensation nucleii. If none of these particles are present then very still or undisturbed air can become super-saturated with the water vapour struggling to form water droplets.

Layers of high altitude air in the earth's atmosphere often become super-saturated. Along comes a piston or jet powered aircraft exhausting the products of fuel combustion which contain a great number of the mini particles and the super-saturated air takes immediate advantage to disgorge its over abundant invisible water vapour into visible water droplets/ice crystals called a CONTRAIL.

At high altitude and sub zero temperatures the transformations from water vapour goes directly to ice crystals and these will persist if the air is highly super-saturated to become a "Persistent Contrail". If the air is only marginally super-saturated then the the contrail will be non-persistent.

Military aircrew avoid contrailling levels like the plague as their aircraft position becomes all too obvious. Civil aircrew like contrails as other aircraft in their vicinity are more readily visible.

The cloud that forms around an aircraft flying fast through super-saturated air at low level has come to be called "ectoplasm".

Whoever started calling Contrails Chemtrails has to be a Conspirator.

I well remember that in the F27 there was a speshul tank at the back of the engine nasell that had to be filled from a speshull container before every flight.

This was, of course, the concintrated chemical for the chemtrail, and I have absolutely no doubt that there was a deal between the Government and the management to release this stuff. How do I know? Because if you drank it you died, thats how.

Lot's of other airoplanes had these tank's fitted. Like the BAC111 for a start.

It had a silly false name, trying to dupe us into believing that it was just water for the engines radiater, but we knew better. The raidiater didn't leak at all, but the stuff always needed a refill.

And the Yanks used B52s to spray chemtrails in the same way. You could see the black stuff coming out as soon as they took off.

''So the (insert mysterious secretive organisation of the moment) can control our minds.'' he replied.

''Well, in your case it doesn't seem to work now does it?'' was my rejoinder.

A dead silence for a considerable period of time ensued whilst what functioning brain cells he still possessed processed that statement. If he ever did, I have no idea as I left shortly afterwards.

I have a chemtrail believer in my family - a moderately distant member, brought in by marriage. But I still feel somehow unclean and defiled. At least we live in different continent 8 time zones apart. She has just posted a link to this article:

An extract:
They typically spray heavily first thing in the morning and greet the sun as it rises. They then spray all day long following the sun as it crosses the sky. They then spray heavily in the west as the sun sets. The aluminum and barium (blanketing us all day) dissipates and falls to the ground in the early evening. The planes then return to their bases to refuel, rearm and get ready for the next attack the next morning. Unless all radio talk show hosts come together and put an end to this craziness called geo-engineering it is my opinion that all life on earth will die and the battle for the future of humanity will be lost. Dane Wigington should be on every radio show at least once a week to cover the latest developments in the collapse of our ecosystem. Itís accelerating and nothing is being done to curtail these insane programs. - See more at: ?Chemtrail Cough? is Sweeping the Nation -- Death by Respiratory Disease Has Skyrocketed | Humans Are Free (http://humansarefree.com/2014/06/chemtrail-cough-is-sweeping-nation.html#sthash.W2QkTZbD.6wzbJzeB.dpuf)

I had a discussion with someone who really wanted to know the truth so we decided he should write to his local airline asking for used aircraft air filters so that he could have them tested, the theory being that if anything is being sprayed 'up there' any aircraft passing by would fly through it and the stuff would show in the filters.

Needless to say the airline, or so he said, wrote him a polite letter telling him he would not be getting any filters. Naturally enough he is now a confirmed believer!:sad:

Some visiting Israelis (to the UK) noticed contrails and asked if they were there to make aircraft look pretty!

It took a while to a) explain the science; and b) understand why they were surprised. Turns out of course that there are no high level flights over Israel . All major flights are landing or taking off from Tel Aviv so are far too low for contrails to appear. Even overflights into Amman are too low. So they never see them.

At least they did not immediately subscribe to the conspiracy theory......

Recently I've looked up a few friends from my earlier years. None of them stupid. I'm surprised how many have bought wholesale into various conspiracy theories. Is it lack of socialization?

After an excellent landing etc...

Now if they sprayed m&m's or smarties, that would be pretty cool. :ok:
But ohhhhhhh no, you evil pilots have to spray drugs and stuff. :p

A friend of mine hasn't done a day's work for over twenty years, since he had a windfall. He's in his mid fifties and sits watching programmes on TV and YouTube about conspiracy theories all day. He's a genuinely nice guy, intelligent and educated, but I do get a bit sick of every second sentence beginning with something along the lines of : "Ah but do you know who really controls that ........."

Yep, their everywhere, and you don't know them until you say the magic word. The sad thing is, you know you can't win, but you naivly correct them on a couple of things without thinking, its not until two or three sentences in, that you know you are waisting your time.

I was sitting in a course a couple of months ago, across the room was this nice chap, same thing, smart, well presented, came acros, well and interacted normally, and then!

I'm on my laptop and he says, "you know Microsoft can see every thing you do"!. I go " I'm using Linux", he says it doesn't matter they control it anyway. I say Microsoft make software and this is hardware, with a different OS. Nope, wouldn't budge.

So I jokingly say, "I suppose you think 911 was a setup", well off it went, no need to elaborate. Still being a bit slow, I mention the moon landings, well say no more.:ugh:

Next time, instead of saying I think XYZ was a set up", say "I think the moon landings were faked in Area 51" and "I firmly believe they captured them at Roswell", then just sit back and say nothing but the odd "mmm", nod etc.

On tankers we were sometimes asked by the receiver to "mark" to aid a visual ident. This involved jettisoning fuel from one of the pods to produce a short duration contrail until the receiver called visual.

If I'd known about "chemtrails" I could have done little morse code messages in the hope that someone on a North Sea ferry would see them and report the phenomenon. How about "We are watching you"?

I usually ask in all Innocence " So if the Moon landings were faked, did Neil and Buzz see them UFOs in Arizona then" :rolleyes::}

The moon landings were genuine.

It's the life on earth that has been faked.*


* Well, not really faked. It's a sim being run by you know who.
