Temporally resolved evolution of parameters in atmospheric plasma jet is studied by means of microwave scattering, fast photographing, and measuring of jet currents. It is observed that streamer ("plasma bullet") propagating along with gas flow is generated immediately after the breakdown. It is demonstrated that an afterglow plasma column remains on the way of streamer passing. Lifetime of the afterglow plasma column is 3-5 μs, which is longer than that of the streamer.
