Busted Pilot Forgets To Turn Off CHEMTRAILS Video - Internet/Facebook Rumour

29 Apr 2014 - Article No: 1841. Filed under: General | Internet/Facebook Rumour

A video showing a plane landing is circulating that claims to show concrete evidence of the popular "chemtrails" conspiracy theory

The video shows a plane landing and what appears to be some kind of misty substance being emitted from the plane’s wings. Conspiracy theorists claim the substance is a chemical that they assert is often emitted from planes in order to control the human population, and in this case the pilot forgot to turn off the emission of the chemical as he landed.

As planes fly through the sky, a misty type substance if often left behind. Many believe that in cases where the mist takes longer to dissipate, it is actually a chemical solution used to infect and control the human population in secret experiments conducted by the government.

Despite the claims made by various conspiracy theorists that this is the first “empirical evidence” of the existence of these nefarious “chemtrails”, the reality is far more mundane.

The video actually shows a common phenomenon known as wingtip vortices, which are “circular patterns of rotating air left behind a wing as it generates lift”. You can see many examples of similar incidents just by Googling the phrase, many of which are near identical to the phenomenon in the video.

An example of wingtip vortices, similar to the ones in the video.

The person who uploaded the video originally on YouTube (see it here) in February 2013, in the video description, even noted that it was indeed wingtip vortices that were visible, but the video seems to have since been hijacked by conspiracy theorists and used to “prove” the existence of chemtrails.

In fact, from the original instance of the video, you can see from the title that the plane was landing at the Los Angeles LAX airport – hardly the expected landing site of a plane undergoing a secret, nefarious government mission!

So no, this isn’t proof of chemtrails at all, just another example of a relatively common spectacle known as wingtip vortices.
