Brian's "Picture of the Week"

IMAGE: Vortex, posted 17 April 2006

Exceptionally vivid vortex from the contrail of a Boeing B737 as seen from just below, while overhead Europe. Although the "Wake Vortex" is always there, it is not always seen. On this day, the tornado-like whirlwinds were amazing to watch. They were quickly rotating and dynamically changing in appearance. [More]. 1419z 30 January 2006.[800x600].(posted 17 April 2006)
