What was the huge plane that just went over SB?

By Edhat Subscriber

A huge plane went over S. B. at about 6:25 p. m. with what looked like a double jet stream. What was it?

You mean the one heading in a south westerly direction? I dunno but noted it was not in the usual fly over lanes.

Next it happens just go to Flight Radar 24 dot com.

The site is a map of the world with icons of every large aircraft. It's pretty cool. Zoom into the area and you will have your answer.

Simple. Main route to China. Big aircraft leave LA and proceed up coast. Been doing this long time.

I believe I saw the same jet stream you were talking about. Was it very high altitude?

Jet exhaust may form contrails, depending on temperature and humidity. A jet stream is a high velocity wind current in the upper atmosphere that you don't see visually.

Yes, you are correct. I did indeed jump on his incorrect term.

So were the contrails you saw coming from a plane that seemed to be at much higher altitude vs. what I would call the "normal" altitude for airliners passing over SB?
