    It took off again after roughly two hours and touched down at Coventry (CVT) in Great Britain around 9:00h GMT. I had to watch the playback on Flightradar24 to spot it - no database entry ...

    N451KA.
    Coventry is one of the four maintenance bases of West Atlantic, the airline to which the freighter was leased by Kahala. Assumably the British registration was assigned there.

    I don't think this plane has any actual relation to the pump system. It may just have been a convenient test platform.

    I think the RVL news bit is a satisfying closer for this thread.
    Turns out the debunking "swarm" had it nailed down with almost 100% precision.

    As we assumed, the whole thing was not intended for a specific plane but designed to work on standard freighter configurations.

    The plane from the OP images was just available as a test bed.

    Shouldn't the first post be appended?

    PERFECT! I am just putting the final touches (and narration) on a YouTube video I am making debunking the video "Chemtrail Plane Inside"

    and this was the last piece I needed.
    The link is broken, but a google search got me to http://rvl-group.com/boeing-737-spray-prototype-takes-to-the-air/

    Thanks for your comment!

    Minimum speeds vary greatly based upon the current weight of the aircraft and model type (-300/400/500/700 etc.), but a typical landing weight of a 737 and most other narrow-body aircraft is going to be in the 130kt/149mph range.

    However, an airplane would not fly that slow in that configuration with the flaps at landing setting/full extension (30-40 degrees) except on a descending approach to land because the flaps create so much drag the engines have to be spooled way up to 50%+. It is a waste of fuel.

    For an aircraft like a 737 to do a job where it needs to be as slow as possible, a more likely flap setting would be 15 degrees, which would result (depending upon weight) in a minimum safe speed around 150kts/172mph (depending upon weight).

    It looks like AEI just does the freighter conversions where they add their freighter door (and probably strengthen the floor beams etc.) http://www.aeronautical-engineers.com/products/

    For the purpose of my debunking video I think that the photo posted by the person I quoted above http://rvl-group.com/boeing-737-spray-prototype-takes-to-the-air/ is the thing that single-handedly "blows it out of the water" (or "disperses out of the water")! Sorry! :D
