In this video you can see two planes dumping fuel. At 0:16 the camera zooms out, and it appears the trails are rather long.And the length. Is there any fuel dump picture that doesn't crop the end of the fuel trail?
Is the fuel crystallising momentarily?

(I realise this is a quote from an external source.)especially on polar routes during the winter.
The only time fuel temperature got close to -47C for me was over Russia in winter. Outside Air Temp was about -70C.(I realise this is a quote from an external source.)
I don't think the temperature at cruise altitude in polar regions is all that cold, given the relatively low height of the tropopause (above which the temperature ceases decreasing with height, or even increases).
