Spiral Slipstream

12 posts in this topic

Hi guys,

Has anyone come across a slipstream from a very fast plane that leaves a spiral effect stream, I have seen a few whilst hunting in Hampshire England, in the last few weeks.

I read the Wiki article on it and have a better understanding of what one is. I've heard the term before but never knew what it meant exactly. It can refer to planes, boat propellers, or the low pressure zone thats created behind moving objects.

It also seems that when people from the UK are referring to a planes contrail they say slipstream. I assume thats what BlackOps is talking about. I'm guessing he saw them in the shape of a spiral.
