Relax With Some Jet Videos Featuring Cool Clouds

We’re all familiar with the clouds that follow behind airplanes when warm jet exhaust meets the cold upper atmosphere, but if you’re lucky enough to find yourself near an airport on a humid day, you can experience a cloudy, visual treat that never fails to dazzle.

A couple of days ago, YouTube user flugsnug uploaded an incredible videoshowing an Emirates Boeing 777 landing and taking off on a gray, drizzly day. The bursts of clouds that follow the aircraft on approach and departure are phenomenal, with spectacular explosions of condensation forming above the wing and behind the flaps, as well as long streamers of moisture that extend off the wingtips of the jet. The wake that follows the aircraft spins existing clouds into intricate swirling patterns that radiate from the flight’s path.

If you have a seat overlooking the wing, it’s pretty common to see sudden bursts of condensation out your window as the aircraft ascends through a deck of clouds. The process that generates these clouds is the same one that allows the plane to fly in the first place.

So kick back, relax, and watch some jets deserve it.
