The next two mornings are going to be a clear and magnificent sunrise in Melbourne, this particular flight has been crossing Melbourne/Surf Coast at about 6am.

It flew across Melbourne the other day on dawn, the most spectacular thing I have ever seen in a while, viewing from the isolated countryside.

I saw it this morning in Hobart. Spectacular enough to stop me as I started my brief, but pretty obvious what it was.

Wow....an interrupted brief in Australia? Don't you file an ASR and involve CASA for that?

Yes, you most certainly do. And you must submit yourself for a DAMP test, 6 weeks of psychological counselling, re-do Safety and Security Awareness, Workplace Health and Safety, Equal Opportunity Employment, and a week of remedial Emergency Procedures training prior to even considering asking CASA for your medical renewal. And then of course a Police Check and another 6 weeks wait for your ASIC renewal. Did I leave anything out? It's hard to keep up these days...

I dont believe it is an aircraft as we know it. The reason is i don't see the profile of an aircraft (even at the camera angle in this example) which i would expect. Where is the "clear air" from the engine exhaust to the beginning of the contrail/chemtrail?

Now the "academics" say it's a contrail. I call BS on this. When they are smart enough to cure the common cold for example i may believe them.

Good for you Dan. Believe what you like.

I saw it, I figured it was a contrail, albeit unusual. There are clinchers. First that it moved in the lower eastern part of sky over a period of several minutes at a speed impossible for space junk or a meteor. and too fast to be the remnant cloud of similar (both of which I have seen at other times).

Secondly, flightradar 24 shows an Emirates A380 in a position east of Hobart at approx 201702271940Z.

It was dawn so it was being lit up underneath from our ground perspective.

But as I said I respect your right to believe what you will. It doesn't make you right though.

CS

Flight Radar not so long ago, showed an a/c being tracked crossing the Tasman sea East to West at "impossible" speed. Do you believe all you see on flight trackers?

Wheels down.

Don't be so silly.

There is a difference between Belief and Knowledge. An A380 high in cruise seen from slightly above instead of below

Yeah and those aliens probably have a fleet of ships too because I'd reckon a different one probably turns up most mornings about the same time and same place. Some, however, possibly run out of the evil juice before they get to Tassie so then they look just like a passing A380.

I guess a cargo cult type thing could now develop in Tassie. It's the problem when modern world mixes with closed ancient society. Kind of like when electricity is sometimes on in South Australia.

Listen Dan........stop being a Richard Cranium......:{

I've been flying for years and years observing vapor trails from other Aircraft above and below me and I can categorically tell you that it WAS an A380 or other LARGE 4 Engine Jet leaving that trail.
I can even see the trail curling in the wing top vortices for Christ sake.:hmm:
It's typical of a vapor trail that dissipates quickly and doesn't hang around for ages like some.

Not only that a Meteorite would be moving one hell of a lot faster than that burning up on entry and yes I've seen them too.....

Idiot of the year is right......:D

Loved the end piece:
Others suggested it was from the International Space Station, which actually flew over last night.

Oh dear, Skylab is falling again...

Flying overhead Hobart, to Auckland? Long way around, normally track overhead Melbourne, from Perth, every such flight I've been on?

Mon 20th Feb....Flt NZ177 NZAK to YPPH, actually flew just to de South of Strahan on de way home.....Lovely to see de Tassie coastline disappearing into de haze.....

We departed from NZAK behind the Emirates '380' and on the climb were not that far behind him and to the left, and his contrails very similar for a while, going thru the various levels....

Xlnt cabin service too.....

Cheers :ok:

Depending upon the winds you sometimes get a Cooks Tour for no extra charge. BNE-DRW via MKY, CGK-SYD via ADL, SYD-PER via MEL.

NZ to PER/Middle East via HBA is very common.

How long have they been adding that golden colouring additive to the chemtrail fluid? I bet that stuff is carcinogenic, too. :(

Would aliens actually want to land in Tasmania?

Would it not be simpler to land at Tullamarine with full customs service available and radar controlled airspace. Dick is always on about the dangers of flying into Hobart, with that 1930's airspace and no radar.

Obviously none of you lot watched "The Kettering Incident" (https://www.theguardian.com/tv-and-radio/2017/feb/16/kettering-incident-tasmania-answer-to-twin-peaks-real-marigold-hotel) - lucky, some might say…..

The 1978 disappearance of Frederick Valentich rates a quiet mention a few times.

So it's true, people do still point at aircraft in Tasmania.

I flew PER- AKL a few weeks back and we were well south of Hobart. Just depends on the winds that evening.
