Why is the afterburner flame of some fighter aircraft blue while for some it is orange?
I agree with Simon's comments. Lighting and ambient lights make all the difference.
The flame is always equally bright, so if the ambient light is lower, the difference between the flame and the rest of the image is larger. When the difference exceeds the dynamic range of the film or sensor, the image of the flame becomes saturated in all channels and ends up as white. Note, that all the images with white flame are night ones.
Also the blue sensor is slightly sensitive to near infrared (being about half wavelength of the blue light), so when high sensitivity/long time are used, this causes the blue glow around the white flames on night images, while on day images with lower sensitivity it is not noticeable.
