Contrail pictures of four engined airliners

 

Four engined airliners are relative frequent overflyers in my area and are most appreciated as these often widebody airliners tend to give the best results in quality. Below over 70 pictures taken via a telescope are shown, sorted by date, all were taken at Kampenhout, 5km NE of Brussels Airport. For the technical details check here. Registrations have been obtained via SBS-1 equipment.

Date read as: day/month/year - hours in local times (CET) - upper air route.
