  • Look! Up in the sky

    For the last 10 to 15 (roughly 3:10pm HST) minutes there are high altitude jets leaving some interesting contrails in the sky over Oahu.

      Oh, so that explains the streaks in the sky I seen this afternoon.
      How'd I get so white and nerdy?

            There's a whacky weather guy in Idaho who believes the government is manipulating the weather through the use of contrails to slow global warming through "global dimming".

                    When we visited Waimea Canyon on Kauai, I noticed spiral cork screw contrails dotted the sky above. No sound of jets or sonic booms though.

                    Perhaps they're testing the Aurora hypersonic X-plane project out of Barking Sands Air Base?

                    Or it could be just atmospheric conditions in that area whic cause standard commercial jets to leave these types of contrails (condensation trails).

                    Here's some quick trivia: McDonald Douglas' YF-23 lost to Boeing/Lockheed Martin's YF-22 to replace the F-15 due to higher production costs and EXCESSIVE CONTRAIL generated off the wing tips.

                    Man, the YF-23 sure LOOKED cool though.

                      I wonder who slept with who to grab that bid! Yeah that 23 did look cool. But didn't Boeing buy out McDonald Douglas?

                      My friend who is an engineer at Boeing told me that when they acquired the DC-9 they simply revamped and renamed it the 717 or the plane that Hawaiian is currently flying. So in the end it was Boeing after all.

                        More likey it was a jet going from Oahu to Japan, I heard that they fly over the north shore of Kauai.
