Virgin Atlantic 747 Foggy IFR Landing

Personally, I love weather phenomenon and how aviation has overcome many of the challenges Mother Nature throws its way. This clip has been around for a while, but it never ceases to amaze.

Even more spectacular is the visible phenomena of wake vortices and low pressure condensation over the wings practically engulfing the aircraft. Simply stunning!

Some viewers may also recognize this clip as one used in the 'chemtrail' arsenal of conspiracy theorists. We here at ATA don't believe in chemtrails because we are aviators and with the exception of myself, highly educated! "747 Pilot Caught Landing with Chemtrail System Activated" is simply a term used by the uneducated to describe the Bernoulli effect of low pressure over the wing as well as wingtip vortices made visible by the same low pressure that caused the surrounding fog.

We hope you enjoy this clip.
