Canterbury: Aerosol Trail & a Contrail at a higher altitude, in the same photo

This photo below was supplied by post-graduate researcher, Malcolm Scott who advised  it was taken at approximately 5.05pm on Saturday, the 9th of July 2016 at Lake Ellesmere, Canterbury and that the aircraft involved were A320s.
Offers Mr Scott: “In the center of the picture there is a tiny contrail from another aircraft traveling at a right angle to the first aircraft, which then crosses over the aerosol trail of the first aircraft.   The ‘aerosol’ is at 37,000 ft and the second ‘contrail’ plane is at 36,000 ft (lower).
This clearly indicates that there were two aircraft in the same relative location, crossing paths within 1-2 minutes of each other, the second aircraft apparently at a higher altitude and only emitting a short vapour trail.
I think any attempt of explanation that the first aircraft’s trail is normal exhaust ‘vapour’ would be ridiculous!”  Agreed. Thank-you Malcolm.  It will be interesting to read what the Civil Aviation Authority and the Ministry for the Environment have to report about this matter.2-9July16Canterbury
