While recently plane-watch at DCA, I noticed a Gulfstream take off. It
left a trail of soot that made even the oldest 727 look lily-white. I
haven't seen such a trail for many years.  The Gulfstream was new enough
to have winglets.

I'm sure that I've seen much cleaner Gulfstreams. What was the problem?
