This photo is of a vortex created by a modern turbofan jet turbine engine during start-up. This engine powers a C-5 Galaxy US military cargo plane. I appreciate that this phenomenon wasn’t intended or predicted during initial engineering of this aircraft, however this type of vortex happens frequently with the C-5 galaxy. I appreciate how the photographer focused on the vortex having a large contribution to the composition of this photo, other images capturing this phenomenon included the full plane. This subtracted from the overall focus on the vortex in my opinion.
