KUWAIT CITY, Jan 17: In a press statement released today, Abdullah Al-Rajhi, the spokesperson for the Director General of Civil Aviation, categorically refuted circulating rumors surrounding the alleged flight of airplanes over Kuwait, engaging in the dispersal of chemtrails or other harmful substances. The denial aimed to address the growing concerns and speculations regarding potential environmental and health hazards associated with such activities.
Al-Rajhi, through an official statement published on the “Civil Aviation” account on the “X” platform, dismissed the claims as “incorrect talk,” seeking to clarify the phenomenon observed in the skies. He explained that the visible trails left behind by airplanes are a natural occurrence resulting from water vapor released from their jet engines during flight. Contrary to popular misconceptions, these trails do not involve the dispersal of harmful substances.
According to Al-Rajhi’s statement, when an airplane is in flight, its engines emit four distinct white lines, a visual manifestation of water vapor. As the vapor escapes the jet engines, it undergoes a process of freezing and crystallization, forming ice particles. Over time, these ice crystals melt, leaving behind the visible trails. Importantly, he emphasized that this natural process has no adverse effects on the environment or public health.
The official denial sought to dispel any unwarranted concerns within the public sphere, providing a scientific explanation for the observed phenomena. Al-Rajhi’s statement serves as an authoritative response to counteract misinformation and assure the public of the safety and standard procedures involved in aviation activities over Kuwait’s airspace.
