Caption: Timelapse footage of aeroplane contrails following the path of the jet stream. The jet streams are high-altitude rivers of air that flow quickly around the Earth from west to east. They form at the boundary between large-scale atmospheric cells due to the interaction between the movement of air and the Earth's rotation. Due to their fast winds, air traffic frequently uses them to saveTime and fuel on eastward journeys. Filmed in the USA in spring.
