Fake, Hoax, Chemtrail Videos

Most of the supposed “chemtrail” videos out there are simply videos of persistent contrails that the video maker somehow has decided are part of a giant world-wide conspiracy involving spraying something for some purpose.

But some videos are actually deliberate hoaxes, either by pranksters poking fun at the chemtrail community, or by people looking to promote the theory for one reason or another.

The above video comes from TankerEnemy, an Italian chemtrail proponent.  It very clearly shows aerodynamic contrails coming from the wings of a KC-10.  The pilots on the cockpit are heard joking about it being “chemtrails”.  TankerEnemy, not being a native english speaker, misses this and thinks they are being serious. He then goes on to “analyze” the video, and points to the flap mechanisms as being nozzles.

The original video was posted by USAFFEKC1OA as a joke (on July 14th 2010, under his original account USAFFEKC10, see here).  He later updated the description to read:

It was fun playing with all the chemtrailers but you guys are way to gullible!! 🙂

And commented:

You guys who keep saying “TOO LATE” need to think before you open your mouth…I don’t care that the videos are still out there and going viral. THAT WAS THE WHOLE POINT OF THE PRANK!!!! …for all of you chemtrail idiots to get all excited as if these videos are the holy grail of chemtrail videos and for me and my friends to laugh at you while you spread them. The more passionate you guys are about this, the more entertaining it is for those of us who live in the real world. Keep on spreading!!

The video has indeed “gone viral”, at least within the chemtrail community. This means TankerEnemy will ether have to admit he was wrong, or continue to assert that the video is real evidence of spraying, even though it’s painfully obvious that it is not. Unfortunately he’s chosen the latter.

He later uploaded the original video, commenting:

This is the original unadulterated video that started all the fuss. It is completely authentic and no camera tricks were used. It is simply a couple of KC-10’s in formation and the audio you hear is just us poking fun at all the “chemtrail” conspiratorists. I knew when I shot the video that this would be catnip for all the conspiratorists out there. Yeah, the contrails have an odd way of “starting” and “stopping” but that is easily explained with physics. It’s no different than the lenticular clouds that form over a mountain or the fog that flows from an open freezer. So, stop being so gullible, kids. There are truely bad things in the world but this isn’t one of them!

Air Force Pilots Chatting While Filming A Chemtrail Being Sprayed

This is an interesting one. It’s NOT FAKE, but it just shows a plane leaving contrails. The pilots are chatting, but just about some test they are taking.

The reason it’s even listed as a “chemtrail” video is the unusual perspective of the shot. It looks rather unusual, and impressive. So some people think it’s either chemtrails, or a fake. But it’s just contrails. That’s what they look like when you are closely following a plane.


This one is less popular, perhaps because it’s more obviously fake. It shows some video from inside a cockpit (looks like an Airbus A321) with someone flipping a switch labeled “CHEMTRAIL ON/OFF”. The video then intercuts the cockpit view with a variety of shots of contrails, implying that the switch created contrails.

It’s hard to take the video seriously. The “chemtrail on/off” labels is obviously hand made, and simply stuck over the existing “Foot Warmer” switch on the switch panel on the right size of the Airbus panel.

Germany becomes the first country to admit chemtrail ops


That’s a real news story about chaff interfering with the weather radar. However the english subtitles have been faked to make it look like it’s a story on “chemtrails”. See full explanation here:


Ultimate Proof – Chemtrails



Those two are clearly just jokes by PogoPoint99, but are amusing takes on the whole chemtrail culture.

People are just posting these videos for their own amusement. It’s a bit unfortunate that they then “go viral” and are used to support the chemtrail theory. But the silver lining here is that the videos are very easily demonstrated to be fake, and I would hope that any chemtrail believer that gets initially taken in my them might pause for a few moments after they discover what the videos actually are.

If you so quickly and easily believed these videos, then how many other things are there that you have quickly and unquestioningly believed in the past? Perhaps it’s time to start questioning things?

    Observer, you might want to check the above part of the site. Two impeccable sources, the Encyclopedia Brittanica and the Journal of Atmospheric Science (from 1970) say that contrails can persist for hours in the right conditions. I would give more credence to that than to anecdotal observations.
    Cloud seeding only works when the silver iodide or dry ice is deposited into existing clouds. It is done at lower elevations than the 30,000-36,000 feet at which contrails occur, and is done with small, maneuverable planes, not four engine jets.
    There is a free downloadable program called Flightaware that uses FAA data to track flights. You can use that to find out in real time which flight is causing a persistent contrail. Where I live, most of these flights are commercial airline flights between the bay area and the pacific northwest.

    Hi Observer- you said “Contrails have a life span of about 15 to 20 minutes, after that they tend to just fade if they persist at all.”

    I suggest you keep reading and learn the basic science of contrail formation and persistence:

    I’m a satellite tech and i’v been looking at the sky since 1994. I watch planes spray there crap and block out the sun, never knew contrails could block out the sun maybe you should […] look up.

  4. Captfitch says:

    Lots of angry posts tonight apparently. Everyone needs to relax.

  5. A says:

    You must be getting paid by the same people that killed all the trees as far as i can see. […] why don’t you post satellite view of the earth with strait line chem cloads. de bunk this

  6. Hi Anthony, there’s lots of satellite images of straight line clouds (contrails) here. For example:


  7. MikeC says:

    A – why wouldn’t contrails block out the sun – they are clouds, and clouds can block out the sun??

  8. MyMatesBrainwashed says:

    never knew contrails could block out the sun

    Well now you do.

    Its really easy to argue the assumptions and facts on both ends. There are more facts associating Contrails with just being Contrails. Nothing more than someone smoking a poisonous cigarette or spraying tons of mosquito killer…the pollution we already feed our earth is causing far more damage. Yes there are more people flying & its easier to find information because of the web. More people are dying yes .. but I can clearly tell you that none of them are dying from these so called Chemtrails. More people are smoking these days.. more people are dying. I hardly think a pilot would want to poison is friends or family even his mother. The US govt sucks in a lot of ways but seriously people. Please do your studying on clouds..temperatures,.. plane level…. type of plane.. the weather at the time….how long has the plane been in the air. Stop believing everything on the internet & everything is a conspiracy & our stress level should go down. Learn something thats gonna get you somewhere.
