Cirrusly Swiss Cheese

Cirrus Cloud Riddled with Holes

This cirrus cloud appeared yesterday, punched full of holes like Swiss cheese, by aircraft traveling along routes to Tampa, Orlando, or Miami. As they passed through the clouds, their wings created a spinning wake, like miniature horizontal tornadoes, that tore holes in the clouds and left a confused pattern behind. Clearly this was another busy day for air travel.
