Very impressive how the props twist the contrails !

Thanks a lot for sharing Kimura.

You're forgiven for the OT :P

That isn't props twisting the contrails, that is tip vortex contrails off each of the propellor tips. It's something you generally only see in very humid air. Most photos of the phenomenon that I've seen have been prop aircraft on carrier decks in the tropics.

Thanks for the correction. Still awesome though. Kinda reminds me of this one, even if as far as I understand it this one is just a photographic artefact :

It's long exposure though, you can tell by the low light environment and the number propeller wakes in the vorticies.

Hmmm. I don't think it's that long an exposure. After all, the props aren't that blurred (it's not like it's a whole disc). I'd guess it's not slower than 1/60... more likely about 1/125.
