A line in the sand

Here's a picture Moshe took on his ambitious flight on Thursday, showing him about to cross the finish line. You'd think that from that height, he would have made it!

Is that a contrail shadow? Never seen that before.

Yes it's a contrail shadow, was a rather sharp one, that showed up in the haze as well as on the ground. Sorry I didn't have a better camera. And I took it on Friday, at half the altitude I had when close to the task goal on Thursday. The thermal (?) I got North of the Carter Range took me to the highest I've ever gotten in a thermal, about 11,400 MSL. An advantage of "blue" days? Alas there was also lots of sink shortly thereafter.

I've never seen one either. Amazing photo.

Moshe,

Did you mean contrail or chemtrail? Rand Paul has as you to call him.

Definitely a chemtrail. You can't prove it isn't, can you?
