Matthew Lewis Posted March 27, 2006 Share Posted March 27, 2006 Three planes flying in parallel formation at the same time are not commercial airliners. Another flying at a right angle is not an airliner. A dozen flying in one area of the sky at the same time are not airliners. If it is anything like your formation you posted about above, then it is hardly a formation. As mentioned in my post above from Dec 2, at a cruise speed of 500mph they would only need to be 7.2 seconds apart to get the one mile separation required by the FAA and that only applies at the same altitude. Can you prove they were all at the same altitude Jack? Can you prove they weren't commercial airliners? Have you checked with a program like Flight Explorer to see if any commercial flights were in that area at that time? Why is it so hard to believe that commercial flights might pass over the city where there are known navigational beacons to follow? Jet contrails do not spread out to become cirrus clouds. I'm afraid you have known and established meteorlogical science against you here Jack. From your own picture there were obviously already some cirrus clouds in the sky so conditions were right for cloud formation. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
