FS: ACOF Press Kit Video shows Virga?

Recommended Posts

Guest

Hey all,Has anyone else looked at the Lockheed Vega movie? Maybe I'm seeing things, but In the second half of the clip, while it's between cloud layers it looks as though there are several areas of virga.There's a lot of it at the aircraft's 12 o'clock, but the camera pans by very quickly. You can see a bit more off the left wing when the camera stops panning.Could it be that this is really virga? Or do you think its some clouds sprites gone awry?Take a look...Regards,Nick

For the uneducated as to what virga is the following brief definition:Precipitation falling from a cloud but evaporating before reaching the ground.I admit, I had to look that up and I hold a PPL for 12 years! :-eek

Sorry,Guess I should've mentioned that to begin with, huh? The term was in my head because meteorology was such a big part of the Aircraft Dispatcher knowledge test. Thanks for for the save!Regards,Nick
