At the Salinas airshow a few year ago, the Fat Albert did it's JATO right over the crowd. Damn scary.

Here is a Fat Albert JATO photo:

Note only 2 jets working. Here is one with 4 working:

Unfortunately, I don't have my own FA photos on the net anymore, but when you get your back, look very closely at the propellers. At the Salinas show, there was enough water vapor to see contrails coming off the blades. Yes, contrails on a prop! Since you had a nearly rainy day, your photos may have contrails coming off the props too. I don't know if this only happens when JATO is used.
