Great stuff! I sent the link to my lady friend who lived in Zurich once upon a time (I've landed there more than once).
Proof positive that a sizable vortex follows behind those big boys!

What an excellent piece of video that should be part of the pilot training program.. so that we really understand the forces involved...

Nice work !

Isn't it amazing how beautiful the world can be? I could go into the complex equations, but that would ruin the sheer awesomeness of the spirals of fog.

Rarely do you get to see such vivid displacement; whoever lit that runway did a great job ;)

Nice. I'll show it to my class.

Beautiful winglets are not only reducing drag but are creating the spectagular spinning cloud.

Wing tip vortices are created even without winglets.

Incredible effects! Shows the amount of disturbed air behind the big boys.

That is why you don't want to be landing close behind in a small plane.

Yeah the gust of air behind would have been very hard to fly through.
