What are the planes constantly circling the Monkey Junction area at night, spraying something?

John Peaspanen


Q. What are the planes that are constantly circling back and forth over the Monkey Junction area at night? They usually have red and white flashing lights on them. This happens pretty often, and I have been watching them for years now do this over my house (I have video!) By the light of the moon sometimes (they also start it at sunset as well) you can really tell they are spraying something. They make these long lines of clouds that stay there for a very long time. It can be 3 or 4 planes at a time just going back and forth. Military exercise or not I think the people should at least be allowed to know what it is that they are spraying or releasing into the air, as it is certainly being let out A WHOLE LOT!!!

A. MyReporter was unable to get a definitive answer. The question is still up in the air.

Wilmington International Airport Director of Operations Gary Broughton said a flight circling over Monkey Junction waiting to land is “possible,” but he had no specifics on any airplane doing so recently.

Contrails or vapor trails are a common occurrence. Water vapor in the exhaust of jet engines or changes in air pressure create the cloud-like trails of suspended liquid droplets or ice crystals.

Chemtrails are more controversial, with theorists claiming that chemical or biological agents are being distributed into the atmosphere by aircraft. Despite thousands of public complaints, the scientific community has declared the idea to be fantasy, saying the alleged chemtrails are merely normal contrails.

With no evidence found in this world, we checked with the Mutual U.F.O. Network (MUFON) of North Carolina. MUFON Public Relations Director Israel Curiel gave his input.

“I haven’t seen one (report) from Wilmington in the last month, but yes, the red and white orbs are common occurrences,” he said. “The most amazing sightings say the lights seem to hover in or around tree tops.”

As for chemtrails, Curiel said, “There are very few sightings reporting fumes. I think the people that are worried about chemtrails are reaching. I know chemtrails are often linked to UFOs, but I do not agree. I think that if there are truly visitors from another star system visiting our planet, then they would use technology far more advanced than dropping chemicals into the atmosphere.”

Lately, there seems to be more and more jet fuel trails visible. Are we under the I-95 of the airline industry?
