Highway in the Sky

Not many words today.  The picture makes the point.


There must have been winds aloft.  The contrails would quickly dissipate and be gone.

About Chuck

I am retired after a career in electronics and in publishing. Today, my wife of 50+ years, Sylvia, and I live in a house on a hill beside a dirt road in rural west Michigan. We enjoy living in this country environment where livestock and wild life out number the human population.

    • We are under a regular flight path. Gerald Ford International Airport (GRR) is 22 minutes west of us. We regularly see planes flying the flight path to land at GRR. Others fly to the beacon at GRR and then continue on a different vector to a different location.

      You’ve got me thinking that I should check out air-traffic control frequency for GRR. I could tune in on my scanner. The county dispatch has gone 100% digital, so I’m no able to monitor that.

    • The parallel straight ones are contrails from airplanes flying in the invisible highways across the sky. I just liked the look of it.

    • Thanks. I first saw this as we came home from church. The contrails were sharp and looked like teeth on a comb. However, by the time I retrieved the camera and came out, the contrails were already getting “fuzzy.”
