On Sunday we were out into what up till than had been a great day and this is what appeared when a plane all of a sudden made a loop in the sky. It was a trail which unlike the normal condensation trails was not reabsorbed into the colder air but instead started to build up into a cloud over a period of several hours.
What is interesting is that the route the plane took (which was a smallish plane of an unknown type) is not on a known flight path and too high to be an route to Hamilton airport for example. I am puzzled by the need of the pilot to make a circle like this and I don’t know if the previous trail was laid by the same plane.
The first photo was taken by one of my neighbors and was made straight after the plane flew over. You also see a previous trail already spreading rather than being reabsorbed.
