I got this photo from the U.S. Air Force site, so it's the real mccoy. I and others have posted similar photos before. It would really be something to see.

The airplane is a C-17 Globemaster, a big cargo plane. The smoke is caused by flares which are released as a counter-measure if the airplane is attacked by a heat-seeking missle. The flares confuse the missle's guidance system and it misses the airplane, or at least that's the way it's supposed to work. The props of the airplane make a circular rotation that causes the smoke trails from the flares to form what's called a 'smoke angel.' I'll post a photo of a good fully-formed smoke angel so you can see why they call it that.
