    Lightbulb How do we call lines of smoke that airplanes left in sky?

    Hello. My name is Sergio. I'm a Russian student. My hobby is photography. After learning English, of course. :)

    Question is in title. Can I call it "airstroke" or "airline"?

    Another name for vapor trails is contrails.

    At the moment, there is a lot of talk in the UK about "contrails" actually being "chemtrails/persistent contrails" - there is more than just vapour in those trails. I am expressing no opinion about the validity of the claims but the word "chemtrail" is becoming more and more prevalent thanks to site such as this.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
