I had to line them up before I saw the similarities. D'oh.
I am pretty sure that date is wrong. Look at the camera model specified:I agree the quality of some flight sim screenshots are amazing!
August 19, 1990
it's the "Billy Whizzer" (don't ask, Brits are weird) which according to Wiki opened in 2000. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chessington_World_of_AdventuresI am pretty sure that date is wrong. Look at the camera model specified:

I think that those are probably just natural clouds. In the first photo it's in-line with a larger bank of clouds.These aren't strictly pre-1995 - they're from July 1995, but I thought they were worth posting here as they're from somewhere a bit different.
I took these on Mount Kenya in East Africa when I was 18. They certainly look like contrails. They could be natural linear formations, but you can bet they'd be flagged up as "chemtrails" by believers.
Yes I wasn't sure about the Kenya ones. The last photo does look a lot like contrails though. And, of course, in chemtrail circles any vaguely linear cloud is a chemtrail!I think that those are probably just natural clouds. In the first photo it's in-line with a larger bank of clouds.
The French Alps photos are contrails though.
That section of Red Dawn is available here. The scene pictured is around the 0:30 mark, but the contrails can be seen right from the start of this clip.I was looking through 'Chemtrails Global Skywatch' FB page.
From Red Dawn, 1984.

Got me thinking, there is apparently a contrail 'blooper' in the 1959 version of Ben Hur and another in 'Quest For Fire' (1981). can't find stills or clips to confirm that at the moment, but in my quest so far has turned up this.From Red Dawn, 1984.
I've looked at chemtrail sites that claim, "chemtrails being edited into old movies". The sites I've seen use as their evidence the Virgin Air commercial from 2005, in which a clip from the film "The Railway Children" was, along with footage from other old films, used in the making of the commercial. I consider this to be a prime example of the chemtrail sites' lack of journalistic integrity. This is bait-and-switch, in which a headline is posted for a article that differs in content from the headline's claim. It is far more accurate to state that a clip from an old (or vintage) film was used in the making of a contemporary commercial, and that a contrail was added to the clip, as well as a modern apartment building, to convey a sense of modernity.Good find, but with Chemtrail believers thinking as per the 'Red Dawn' that the conspiracy is busy going around altering films, then even finding a copy of the original film would not prove that the vapour trails were there to begin with.
As a side note I do know that changes do happen to films over the years. The dialog for the VHS versions of "The Hunt for Red October" was altered slightly before the DVD release. When the captain of the USS Dallas is sending the secret morse code message, his line ends "...or the dimensions of Playboy of the month." in the VHS version, it's omitted in the DVD version.
And of course there are the games George Lucas played with the first Star Wars film...
That is an amazing find, and a great addition to this discussion.Not clear exactly how persistent this is, but an interesting page:
