Those vapour trails are returning

Just beginning to notice a few more aeroplanes in the sky….until recently these were almost the sole occupants of the sky:

and now these have returned more noticeably


  1. It’s good people can move again but then part of me thinks shame our skies are being clogged up again!

  2. I wonder why you’re seeing more now? Change of flight paths to avoid Iceland?

  3. I noticed that too, now when you see one you are like a child – look an airplane 😀

      There was a Pink Floyd track, forget which one, on the Wall album….and you hear a child’s voice “look mummy, there’s an aeroplane, up in the sky”

  4. I think we’re all in two minds about traina, boats and planes now. One half of me wants clear skies and no more planes with their pollution, but my other half is quite sensible knowing that progress is unavoidable and we need to be able to move about in the skies. What we have to push for is a more inventive way to approach pollution. I remember meeting a scientist during the first big oil crisis who worked for one of the big oil companies and he told me not to worry that they already had a substitute for oil but it would mean investing heavily in more and different equipment and the big companies wouldn’t do this until they were forced to. I think it’s probably the same today.

  5. I do wonder how much Iceland is playing into it. Contrails can be fun to see though. Great photos Sue.

  6. I noticed contrails in this part of Ontario the last week or so.

  7. We have no shortage of aircraft, due to being close to both RAF Marham, and not far from the the USAF base at Lakenheath. But they are usually much lower, and noisier, than the civil aircraft heading for Norwich Airport.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  8. I rather like the sky without the planes. I was watching a buzzard circling this afternoon – that’s all the flight I need right now.

  9. Yes, I’ve also begun to notice and hear them… I find eagles and hawks to be a much more pleasurable sight but also long to freely travel again. I do believe “where there is a will, there is a way.” Hppefully, humankind will have savored the natural skies enough this past year to commit to doing something positive to preserve them…

  10. We ran into a conspiracy driven man one otherwise pleasant afternoon that said that contrails were evidence of something dastardly. I love them just the same! LOL

  11. I couldn’t help notice that the sky is so bright and blue. Here, we could hardly see such beautiful skies peppered with fluffy clouds. Woes of living in a metropolitan.
