Contrails over Adelaide

Clare’s posted a report and some pictures from ‘CuzzieBro’ that showing ‘trails’ over Adelaide.

Surprisingly, the report contains enough actual facts to make some sort of analysis as to what was going on. Using flightradar24, CuzzieBro established that the plane in question was Thia [sic] Airways THA461, and it was at a height of 37000ft when his pictures were taken. Not surprisingly, neither CuzzieBro nor Clare bothered to take the extra step of trying to figure out if the atmospheric conditions at that time were conducive to contrails.

So, again, using the guide Clare recommends, let’s find the upper atmospheric readings for a nearby weather station (in this case, Adelaide Airport), for that day. The results…?

At a height of 370000ft (11277m), for Adelaide Aiport on the 31st of October:

  • Temperature: -54C
  • Pressure: 223hPa
  • RelH%: 42%
And then we plot that on the Appleman Chart…

…which would make you think that maybe, just maybe, what was photographed were contrails?

  1. Why did you expect Clare to actually follow through with her own advice?

    you know by now that anything that doesn’t meet her preconceptions doesn’t get published on her blog – even if it does follow her own advice – isn’t that precisely why you have this one?? 🙂

  2. I went out at 6am this morning and watched as aircraft to the west of Mt Barker a long way off the usual flight path sprayed high altitude chemicals, there were 5 or 6 trails mostly parallel with a couple crossed. It’s been well documented that in all NATO countries there is a massive program by the government under order from the UN to spray a mixture of mostly aluminum oxide, barium and thallium. A large group of scientist have been collecting data since 2007 and have found that the heavy metals such as aluminum particles are at levels of up to 61,000ppb when governments claim safe levels are 1000ppb, as well as high levels of barium and thallium.
    The effects have been large changes in soil PH which is killing large tracks of native forests and softening the bark on palm trees in Hawaii and eventually killing the trees, with these changes in PH it’s becoming more difficult to grow traditional seed varieties and farmers are being forced to use GMO seeds that have been developed to withstand the changing soil structure, scientists have also found an alarming decrease in micro organisms in highly organic surface soils where one would normally expect to see the opposite This is not! a conspiracy theory it’s well documented fact for those interested watch the full story on YouTube ‘ Danger In The Shy – The Chemtrail Phenomenon , check it for yourselves.

      Documented where? Which government? All governments?

      Which scientists? Where can we see these results?

      But not in other areas where ‘chemtrailing’ is prevalent? Why is that?

      I think, by definition, what you’re describing would have to be a conspiracy. I’ve watched “Danger in the Sky”, and, much like “What in the World are They Spraying”, it’s bereft of both scientific understanding and analysis, making illogical claims based on the flimsiest of premises.

      Have you checked the upper air readings to see if contrails were likely to occur?

      How do you know the flight paths were a ‘long way off’ their usual routes? Assuming you’re in Mt Barker, South Australia, then all air traffic in to and out of Adelaide Airport would, at some point, be to the west of you, surely? Looking at flightradar.com right now, I can see four separate aircraft that are in the airspace to directly your west, and a fifth that will be there soon.

    • You are very mistaken if you think there are no flight paths near Mt Barker. I am looking at Flight Aware right now (15 Dec, 00.40 UTC) – you can check it swith the replay funtion if you want – http://www.flightradar24.com/, and there are 3 flights that ahve or that are about to head over you:

      VOZ552 from Perth to Sydney passed overhead about 5 miles north of your location at 41,000 feet.

      QFA480 from Perth to Melbourne is currently overhead Hardwicke Bay and looks to be heading about 20km south of you at 37,000 feet.

      QFA581 from Sydney to Perth is heading the other way about 150-200km east of you at 38,500 feet.

      So in fact you are almost directly underneath quite a busy flight path!!
