White Lightning Q-jets have exhaust that looks like a Sparrow missile exhaust, NOT like any modern afterburner. A F-4's J79 engines produce smoke during AB operation and without, but it is faint black, not white like WL propellant.
If ANY jet exhaust looks like WL propellant, it is a MAJOR problem !

Yes, there is such a thing as NORMAL
, if you have to ask what is "NORMAL" , you probably aren't

Failure may not be an OPTION, but it is ALWAYS a POSSIBILITY.

I saw a pair of F4s takeoff at St. Louis one night back in the late 80s. They had a 20 to 30 ft. Blue flame that after rotation deflected off the runway into a v . It was the most awesome takeoff I have ever seen.
