Delivered to Southwest Airlines on 28 April 2014, this 737-8H4 (N8628A) is still relatively new.

It took off with a thunderstorm at least 10 miles away from the airport.

Just confirming my conclusion: 1969 was the best year for vehicle styling.

Vapour Trails created by planes:

Areas of low pressure form around the edge of the wing, creating vortices - tubes of circulating air - that leave trails behind the wing’s tips. The low pressure in these areas mean that cold air can condense, leaving spectacular trails of water or even ice behind the plane.When a plane passes through a cloud, water vapour and ice from the clouds are sucked into the vortices, adding to the effect.

The air pressure created around the plane can also cut through a cloud, parting the vapours and leaving spectacular patterns behind as the clouds gather around the vortices. A plane breaking the sound barrier produces a similar condensation effect around an aircraft, caused by an area of low pressure rapidly forming towards the plane’s tail.
