Above: screengrab from the video shot by Lou Boyer of a Boeing 787 and its incredible contrail.
Lou Boyer was in the cockpit of a Boeing 747 over eastern Russia early one morning when he saw a Boeing 787 crossing 1,000 below him. That was not unusual, of course, but the contrail it left behind was extraordinary. Mesmerizing, you might say.
We don’t know for sure what camera he used, but he often shoots with a Sony AX53 camcorder.
Mr. Boyer, who often posts videos of aircraft and snakes, gave us permission to use this one.
(Enjoy the video, and feel free to leave comments, but don’t even THINK about mentioning ch em tra ils!)
