Fantastic photo! Someone was on the ball to catch that pic. I'm curious tho.... The aircraft in that photo is going toward the disturbance in the clouds (smoke?). So there was a previous aircraft. Any chance anyone knows the aircraft type or the conditions / location of the photo?

To me it seems that I'm looking at the A/C going away from me and towards the giant wake vortex.

Jason Apol & themold.

The aircraft is indeed travelling away from the viewer.
However - the wake vortex is closer to the camera than the aircraft is. The aircraft created that vortex and is moving away. It has "passed through" that vortex already.

Amazing....!
It happened to be difficult to render the pic. 1st. If it were a vortex facing the plane someone could’ve made the pilot aware about it. 2nd. The distance between the supposed vortex and the plane would be too short for attempting a right turn. 3rd. The distance between the plane and the camera would be too short to try to avoid an eventual crash. Gathering all events aforementioned could make up a peril combination leading to a fatality. Saving a better opinion.

Great Photo! It just goes to show a sunny day is not required, when you are in the right place at the right time and can see what is happening before you.
