Capture of the vapor cone that is sometimes produced at subsonic mach speeds.
The cone only forms when a plane flies past a particularly humid area, it's pressure envelope increases the air pressure around and causes the water vapor to instantly condense. Once the plane passes, the pressure is released and the condensed water would just as quickly re-vaporize. Of course the faster a plane goes, the greater the difference of pressure and so the effect will be more evident.
Window Washing at 1032ft
I was at the John Hancock Observatory shooting the planes on the practice day for the Chicago Air and Water Show when all of a sudden the window washers appeared. I had to grab a few shots. In all my visits I have never seen them before.

Ready for Takeoff
Attended the Fox Valley Aero Club Festival Of Flight. The pilots were all eager to talk about their planes, and fly them.
"Waiting to Fly"
Attended the Fox Valley Aero Club Festival Of Flight. Had a great time watching the pilots run their planes, and talking with them.
Attended the Fox Valley Aero Club Festival Of Flight. It was a great time to watch the pilots put on a show with their RC Planes.
Found these guys enjoying Cruise Night in Lombard.
