Just like everything else in life, the "same" flight is never the same. Especially for us, since we tend to take slightly different routes and notice different things. We saw strange sights Tuesday on the ground too, with our best camera along to snap & share some with you.

Did you see this "nosy" jet in a cloud vortex flying low and slow, and wonder what it was doing over Lompoc? I did, so here's an enhanced pic too. Flying home in the evening we noticed this freaky looking mud plume in the hills near Goleta. After landing we paused to enjoy the moonrise accented by the strangely wispy and varied cloudscape.

You should be more concerned about your private information on the internet and Google & Facebook peddling your personal info than silly chem trail conspiracies.

Obviously, you did not read the site for comprehension. Here is some real information to keep other people from falling into the chemtrails delusion: https://contrailscience.com

Yeah , I looked at that one page of some guy saying there is no prof, and right below it was 5 or 6 harvard guys saying it does exist. And did you look up where it is now openly known? To find 1 page by 1 guy, doesn't discredit the thousands of pages by many scientist. Sad. But you can believe what you want and we wont call you names and be insulting.

Wow. Just read about all kinds of things that can be in that F-15 fighter jet nose with the AESA Technology. Retrofitted for DEW among them. YAY!

Please share. It feels to me that we all need to be more aware of whats in our skies. DEWs, Aerosol spraying, drone armies, etc, etc. Lets all just be aware and share with open minds. I'm sure this comment will attract those that don't want our minds open and want us to just shut up and stop being aware. But we all need to be more aware. Look up, talk about what you see, and lets be kind and open about all this. Let's not censor each other like the major tech companies are sensoring us. We are all in this together. Any other perspective must mean there is something to hide. This is a Ra*the*on plane btw

Chemtrails have zero validity. Belief in such nonsense is a sign of hugely deficient cognition.

A mind without critical thinking skills or the ability to distinguish between what is real and what is fantasy, is truly an open garbage can.

And yet a mind so open that it admits idiotic concepts like chemtrails and anti-vax is more like an open garbage can.

Raytheon Flight Test Operations fly this modified Boeing 727, N289MT, as a test platform for new avionics. It is sometimes called 'Pinocchio' , on account of it having an F-15 Eagle fighter nose fitted, but is better known as 'Voodoo 1' which is it's call sign.

Any mud ideas? Runoff, fracking, drilling, road work? I'm curious, and wish we had a better pic. I found the "tail number" of the jet: N289MT - some interesting stuff online about it.

Voodoo 1 & contrial stuff is online about this aircraft, and that's apparently the nose from an F-15 fighter jet stuck on the front. Shall I try to share some links? -John Wiley (my main account's not working).

1213-That looks like Honeywell red to me. They were my employer @ VAFB when I was(much) younger.

This 727 looks to be a Honeywell test aircraft. The red stripe towards the aft of the aircraft is a signature Honeywell color. Has some sort of radar pod on the bottom as well. Could be the testing of some new type of radar for fighter jets.

The plane looks like the one they use for prisoner transfers at the pen.
