Good lord, people. It is a contrail at the border of two different air density/temperature layers, which has waves, like water. Air and water behave similarly, ya know, with respect to fluid dynamics. The peaks of the "waves" contain crosswinds and are dragging the contrail sideways.
This study explores the microphysical responses to a cloud seeding operation in the Sanjiangyuan region, China. The cloud seeding was performed using a zigzag flight pattern, while the detection phase was accomplished using a back-and-forth flight pattern through the top of a stratocumulus layer.

There are fighters that can't maneuver like that, but a big clunky geoengineering plane is going to?
That's probably a 10G+ turn, and you think that this is capable of pulling a turn that
tight? You need to study up a little more. All commercial or business aircraft are clunky compared to a fighter.
Stuck on large craft? How big (or how small) does a pane have to be to make a chemtrail?

How many g's here?

And, just in case, the visual difference between skywriting and geoengineering:
Skywriting VS geoengineering

And the one visual difference is: can you guess? Skywriting lasts for, perhaps, 15 minutes, while chemtrails just go on and on like the famous eveready.
