At work and noticed some strange vapor trails in the sky, looked closer and there's a plane flying over houston doing circles, it's moving farther and father east over time and out east is where all of the chemical plants are. Any other day I wouldn't care but not today. Who should I contact? I can't see it now since the sun has gone down but it's been over head for teh last house just flying in cirlces.

It's just a UFO from Area 51 on a cross-country flight. Nothing to worry about.

I had a helicopter doing circles over my house for about 5 minutes earlier today. Not sure what the hell they wanted.

I seriously tried to contact the FAA but then I remembered that it's Saturday night.

It's just a strange sight to see, especially on todays date,

Not enough, usually, for vapor trails.

Need air density, speed, etc...for that.

Do you guys (.mil pilots) try to adjust your altitude to avoid leaving contrails? And isn't there some compound in the fuel to cut down on them too?

Con(densation) trails.


CONTRAILS occur above 24,000 ft where the air is below freezing no matter what.

If flown below that it's something being dumped out.

For what I flew in the suck, no. Never heard of it being SOP for any other platform as well.

Never heard of such a thing...JP5 or JP8 and go.

Fighters do what we can to minimize contrails. I've schwacked more than one Red-Air bandit who was not paying attention to his cons. Without them, I wouldn't have known they were there.

Jet A requires the Prist (anti-icing) additive before we can use it in our aircraft. That makes it basically JP8 (or 4 - can't remember which).

Updated today at 7:53 PM


HOUSTON—Many citizens were concerned Saturday after seeing a large plane circling the city, but officials said there is no cause for concern.

Officials at Ellington Field and Bush Intercontinental Airport confirmed it is a NASA test plane. Texas City Emergency Management said the plane is flying at 50,000 feet as a test maneuver.

Yes, it is the Guppy making flights around the Houston area. They have been doing training flights for over a week. These test flights have been planned for several months and appropriate flight plans filed. Aircraft with multiple turboprops (T-56 engines) are capable (and do) fly sustained 50k flights including the Guppy, P-3, and C-130. If anyone is still concerned or skeptical, simply Google Ellington Field Flight Schedule and check out Flight Aware dot com. All local EFD planned flights are kept up to date on that site. Rest assured, not all the engineers at NASA with brains have been let go. The force is strong.... SpaceMan74

How incredibly insensitive and irresponsible of NASA to test an aircraft, which was making irregular patterns over the city today, the anniversary of 9/11. Perhaps a heads up to the general public would have been nice...

51731974 Flag this commentlld2282 said on September 11, 2010 at 8:30 PM
Guppy serivce ceiling is only 32000 feet...therefore, doubt it was that transport aircraft used by NASA...gosh, don't believe you're going to see any turbo-props bouncing around 50,000 feet....only jets...settle down people.

Thank you, petalpusher. I did a search for photos of the Guppy and this is, indeed, what I saw. Wow, what a cool looking aircraft. Thanks again for setting me straight.

Maybe if NASA had not had the budget cuts, they could have retained the "employee with a brain" that was laid-off.

Thanks KHOU for keeping us informed. However I do wish NASA would have picked another day besides 9 11 to do this. Surely they could have foreseen that it would make a lot of people uneasy.

The plane out of Ellington is the guppie and it's there all the time. Really a cool airplane. Has it's own hangar.

Superb bit of timing NASA. Who was the brainiac who came up with the idea of flying unusual air traffic patterns on Sept 11th? Was that insensitive or just a bit of bad planning? Who signed off on that little stunt?

I saw a huge plane last week flying at about 1,500 feet above Ellington Field that I couldn't identify. It was shaped like a large whale and I've never seen anything like it in my life. Wondering if this is the same one that was seen at 50,000 feet today.

Yeah.it's flying really high and practicing turns or something while leaving a very sharp contrail. I was wondering what was up with that,thanks KHOU
