Contrails - South Carolina
Said Sprayed Today
By Ken Welch
Since my first articles appeared about the spraying of cities, many people
have been sending in reports of fuel-areosol spraying that clearly indicate
this is a coast-to-coast and nationwide program.
Today Florence, South Carolina was heavily sprayed.
Below is the report I received, which came in two separate e-mail messages. It is very similar to reports I've gotten from other cities and towns all across America. The senders ID is omitted for privacy.

Subject: Contrail Spraying in South Carolina
Hello....I live in Florence, SC which is 65 miles Northeast of Columbia and
65 miles west of Myrtle Beach.
On the morning of Monday May 3, 1999, I took my girlfriend to work at the mall which is on the western edge of town by I-20/95. When me and my friend dropped her off, we start noticing all these contrails that have been laid down. Very odd looking in that there were alot of them. Visibility was excellent in this area as it is right beside the interstate, so we could see for a long distance.
I tell him about your article I read at and we start watching what's going on. At the time we were at the mall there were about 5-10 clearly-spreading contrails across the sky. I got the sense they had started appearing around 8:30-9:00am as it was a little after 9 when we first observed them. We also observed a plane heading along the western edge of the city in a northerly direction laying down more contrails, and a plane on the eastern edge heading south laying down another one.
We entered the mall for about an hour and when we came out it appeared that the plane working the eastern edge (over town) had first appeared between the mall and the city (about 1-1 1/2 miles apart) but now was to the far eastern edge of the city--definitely farther east for sure.
I got the sense that 3 planes were doing this. The contrails did not stay 'tight' and then dissolve, but rather they spread out and became artificial clouds, if you can believe that. This was a cloudless blue sky before the planes began...but they changed all of that. It's 2:30 pm now, and alot of it has faded but you can STILL see some of the wispy clouds remaining in the sky.
I called the airport and the controller told me that '1000's' of jets fly over every day and that the contrails were not a problem and did not contain anything that would drift down on us. He also skirted my question about who was using the airspace and if there was a military operation in progress. Answer: "We havent had a military op in awhile."
Also, I was told that the jets that fly over us do so at 35,000 feet and I find it real hard to believe that the jets we were watching were that high. So, anyway, we were getting nervous about the sheer number of contrails they laid down.
When we left the mall we drove to my house and on the way stopped at a store 5 miles from the mall. We exited just in time to see a twin engine plane fly over to the east heading north spraying a double plumed contrail out behind it, which was VERY thick.
Also when coming from the mall we looked down Highway 52 towards Darlington, a small town 10 miles west of us, and you could see the "Artificial clouds" all the way back in that direction. The heaviest concentration of contrails we first saw were between Florence and Darlington (i.e. the mall) but we also can't forget the plane which ended-up all the way east of Florence spreading trails.
I will say that being an Air Force brat, and also living around here for 18 years, I've never seen any thing like this before. It's so bizarre you can't help but question who's putting on the "Insane Air Show" over town. I mean it's a little ridiculous to think that planes travelling over us laid down this many contrails not to mention the circuitous nature of the planes involved. It appeared to me that by the time they had finished they had covered an area 25-35 miles wide east to west.
Also I don't know if this has any bearing...but we were hit with flooding rains the last 4 days straight and this was the first blue cloudless day since. Anyway, when 'they' finished there were so many contrails over us I couldnt have even counted them, but they definitely did spread out into cloud form when it was over. I mean the only word that comes to mind with the number of contrails we saw was "overkill."
Me and my friend looked at your photos on the website and trust me those pics represent exactly what we saw (especially the Philadelphia shot with the blue sky, but ours looks to be alot wider swath than that).
I wish I had gotten some pictures or some footage but I was kind of stunned by the whole thing and was busy on the phone here trying to get the media involved to check it out. Like I say, the pics on your site accurately represent what we saw.
And by the way my nose hasn't quit burning since we came in from being out there either. We also noticed some shortness of breath and I must say these feelings came on pretty quickly. Also, I'm noticing that my eyes are burning, too.
I hope you find this interesting and please feel free to reply.
Thanks, * * *
P.S.--BTW i talked to a friend of mine 50 miles west of San Francisco and she says they have all been sick with respiratory ilnesses they blamed on allergies and that theyve got planes flying over them all the time. Alot of my friends around here have been sick also. I've been stopped up for 2-3 weeks. We have been blaming these ills on pollen but then again maybe we were sprayed before this in the early a.m.; I'm usually a night person and am not up at 9am to see something like this. I wouldnt have believed it if I didn't see it with my own eyes, so I'm glad I was up this morning. Peace.
The pictures from Marv of the Grand Canyon trails look like what we saw but we were hit with many more trails than what appear in that picture.....

Dear Jeff,
Until a few months ago, I would not have believed that the government of this country would do anything to intentionally harm all American citizens. I now believe differently after seeing "Chemtrails" with my own eyes and investigating the legal justifications for their application. It was early April. I had just gotten a haircut and walked outside to a beautiful Spring day in Portland. I looked up at the scattered clouds in the sky and noticed some most unusual formations. At about 10,000 - 15,000 feet there were several north south lines of clouds that looked like they had been sprayed from a plane. In fact, I saw a plane heading southbound off in the distance with a trail forming behind it. This was much too low for a contrail. It almost looked like skywriting.
What really caught my eye though was one trail in particular. It began in the north and took a 90 degree turn east for about a mile or so at which point it took another 90 degree turn south. I examined the continuity of this trail very carefully and realized that this had been made in one pass by one aircraft. How it could make those particular turns is beyond me. It couldn't have been a wind shear either as there were other trails parallel to the north south axis that had no similar diversion. Just to the north of the east to west portion of the trail was a "Z" in the sky. I don't think it was Zorro. I decided I would carry a camera wherever I went from that point on.
I had read some of the information on your web site by Ken Welch and William Thomas, but it didn't hit home until I actually saw the phenomenon of Chemtrails for myself. This particular trail I saw was like rubbing it in our faces. I was outraged. I posted reports on several bulletin boards and sent emails to Senator Wyden, Congressman Wu and Governor Kitzhaber. As yet, I have received no response to my question "What is this stuff?" One week later, I went out to water in back and saw a single trail just to the east of our neighborhood at about 8 - 10,000 feet. It then drifted over our house heading off towards the southwest. Now I don't want to insinuate that any of the aforementioned gentlemen would be responsible for such a strange occurrence, however the coincidence was more than curious. Title 50, Chapter 32, section 1520 of the U. S. Code states we can essentially be guinea pigs for chemical and biological experiments by the military with a 30 day advance notice to local officials. This has since been amended to allow testing for only the following purposes with informed consent of the human subjects:
1. Any purpose that is directly related to a medical, therapeutic, pharmaceutical, agricultural, industrial or research activity.2. - 3. Any purpose that is directly related to the protection against toxic chemicals or biological weapons and agents.4. - 5. Any law enforcement purpose, including any purpose related to riot control.6. -
However section 1515 states:
Sec. 1515. Suspension; Presidential authorization
After November 19, 1969, the operation of this chapter, or any portion thereof, may be suspended by the President during the period of any war declared by Congress and during the period of any national emergency declared by Congress or by the President.
We are currently in a declared state of emergency via executive order 12938 of 11/14/94. This still allows for the clandestine or overt usage of human subjects for testing. I am continuing to investigate the trails and the laws. I am also emailing officials wanting to find out what is going on. May The Force Be With Us.

Subject: SC Contrails-Final Report
Just ventured out to the store and I was wrong.....not wispy clouds but a numerous spread of clouds in all directions as far as the eye can see.....also ironic was to the west, and between distance and altitude a barely visible plane, laying a twin engine contrail in a gradual climb......however the plane that flew closest to us this morning was about the size of a penny held at arms length and the shape clearly visible but not details--by the way my face feels burning irritation around cheeks,mouth and eyes, and like you said it feels like a fuel burn, say when lighter fluid leaks out of a lighter on to the skin....anyway Im packin it in and staying indoors so take it easy....Hope you find out what its all about because now im surely curious as hell..........
Good Luck, * * *
And good luck from Houston,

Saturday, I was outside with my 4 yr. old daughter. We enjoy viewing airplanes and jets flying overhead. This Saturday we saw a low flying single engine plane come over our house and a jet flying much higher. No big deal, right?
About an hour later the small plane flew over again, (many planes fly over, North MS, near Memphis) with another jet flying at a high altitude. When I saw it I told Lexxie to look up. I had my gaze fixed on the jet when it started to spray. I mean as I watched, it began.
As soon as I saw it I thought of the articles I've read from your web site and heard in your archives. It was as if when I saw it happen I knew it in my heart... We are all guinea pigs on a large scale.

Dear Jeff, They are at it again. I was talking with my new neighbor, looked up and saw a huge Chemtrail floating merrily overhead. It was a north south trail drifting from west to east. My neighbor realized that this was not a normal cloud formation and will investigate more on his own. My wife and a friend then came home to work on an art project. Her friend said she had never seen a Chemtrail before. Well you have to be careful of what you ask for. At about 5:00 PM, I walked out in front, facing west and saw a huge north to south trail at about 10,000 feet heading straight for us. I called them out to see it. As we were watching, a new trail was being laid also on a north south meridian. I have good pictures of the last 2 along with the large "X" in the sky I saw at about 3:00 PM. Portland, Oregon is being sprayed big time.

Hi Ken,
I've been watching the Chemtrails in Toronto since March 31st. Two days ago (Mother's day) I was riding my bike to my parent's when I heard the roar of a jet engine behind me. Turning reflexively to look, I saw a low flying jet plane. ATTACHED TO THE REAR OF BOTH WINGS was a clear plastic 'Skirt' appearing to have vertical hoses running all the way through it. Unbelievably it was simply flapping along behind the aircraft's wings, in flight. This was followed by four or five more planes flying much higher but going in the same direction (North). Spraying then started in my area around 6:00pm and has continued ever since. I have to simply turn my head to the left to see multiple lines in the sky.
I have noted two types of dispersion. The first is the normal spray plane that will leave lingering contrails.
The other I believe is are normal planes ADAPTED for spray duty with this 'skirt'. These planes leave fat contrails in four lines emanating from the rear of the aircraft, however these disperse in less than a minute just like normal chemtrails. I've seen these two types of planes work in conjunction many times. Perhaps one is spraying EDB while the other concentrates on the pathogens I simply don't know.
As you point out 'spraying' is not the major problem here. There are many ways in which we are being poisoned, bleached flour and, vegetable oils, MSG, Fluoride in the drinking water, the misuse of antibiotics etc.the list goes on and on and on.. Spraying the air is simply the natural, logical next step in our government's constant and unrelenting attacks on our health.
Note that spraying is being reported in the same countries who have chosen to Fluoridate their water supplies.
I have also noted small lights moving oddly about in Chemtrail clouds. I have seen this only once, although my roommate saw the same thing later in the day. The light was small and very hard to see. It dipped vertically and moved like no airplane could.
I've been sick with a Lymph Node infection. I do not recommend taking antibiotics for these infections and I cured my problem with herbs like Burdock Root, Yarrow, Red Clover and health products like Bio-K designed to boost the immune system. I believe the the best defense for the lungs is Marijuana Smoke, which is a powerful anti fungal and is drawn directly into the lungs. I like to burn lot's of candles on spray days. It seems to eat up the excess EDB and make the air more tolerable to breathe.
I'm glad that you and others are getting the word out via the net. On spray days I ride my bike around and talk to people about the chemtrails, simply motioning towards the sky when met with disbelief.
Once enough people know what's going on, we can start to take out countries and our world back. Please keep up the good work!
Yours Truly,
