Amazing con trail

I wandered out into the garden this morning, looked up and saw this :open_mouth: :open_mouth:
By the time I’d got the camera the trail had begun to disperse but it went on for miles. I sat for another hour with the camera but didn’t see anything similar.

The flight was heading West to East from my place towards Heathrow but it was too high to be landing there. Anyone else see it?
It might have been KLM751 at 39,000 feet

Looks like part of “Surrender Dorothy”…

LOL! (Really, not kidding. I actually LOL’d.)

More efficient dispersal of chemtrails that way. :wink:

Just saw an old lady fly by on a bike with a dog in the front basket

Your description of ‘West to East toward Heathrow’ doesn’t even remotely match up to KLM751 on that date:

Didn’t check FlightAware or FlightRadar24 to see what was overhead at the time? :slight_smile:
