Very cool! My favorite has to be the first one.

Cool, indeed! Interesting that the main vortices from the Airbus are coming from inboard, under-wing structures (edges of flaps, looks like, 'though I couldn't enlarge the picture enough to be sure). I've never seen that before. I guess winglets really do work sometimes, huh?

That 3rd picture, often that was my view during my years with the FAA, working on the instrument landing systems, lighting equipment, etc. 😊

What's missing is the swirling sound that those mini tornadoes make, after the plane has passed over head.
