Very smokey 777

Is this amount of smoke usual for UA 777's. It doesn't seem right 😳 take a look at how much smoke there is at spool up and when it turns


What is your opinion. It doesn't compare to my sig though 😁

I guess UA 777's smoke normally. Not a good image for UA and PW 😳

hmm, if im worried about global warming, that is why my signature is a super smoker Idea I know Global Warming is fake. but geez, should a 777 be smoking like that 😳 Maybe it needs patches 😀

Let's not forget that all flights are now non-smoking!

I can confim 777's DO in fact smoke! I saw about 12 of them in the 3 hours I was in O'Hare today waiting for my flight to come in for Charlotte leg. But MAN those lucky 7's are a thing of beauty to watch take off!!! OMG.

By the way... yall may think me a crackpot, but global warming... yes. But it is not quite what you think. Watch the movie "The day after tomorrow" to get a more realistic depiction of what COULD happen in our lifetime.

Right now we can all say it's fake and so on... but I would REALLY hate to be the one who said I told you so. In my lifetime I have noticed the difference. Even the sky looks a lil different than it did back in the 70s.

I saw a few of them smoke similarly... most did not. It did not seem to have an effect on flyability to me.

Were all the smokey ones United (I bet) 😀
Smoke and noise make an entertaining take off, and don't forget LOTS of wind 😀

the black smoke seems to indicate the kerosene isn't being burned completely.
