Welcome to a dawning in the jet age...


Almost every one of these clouds started life as the exhaust trail from a jet flying the main flyway just offshore here along our Pacific coast which links the lower 48 with Alaska and points beyond, in the Orient. And if you want to find out more about who's making these, take a look at flightradar24.com for live tracking info on what's in the air right now.



And then click on one of these to show a panel on the left with details about it...



Take a look at Atlanta for example, for a sky full of aluminum.....



And then try to image how many millions or billions of cubic feet of exhaust is being added to our air every day, and how many thousands of  gallons of fuel these are burning to create it. Here's North America this Sunday morning.....



Seems almost hard to believe, doesn't it?
