Hi,

I just noticed this outside my home, I live near several RAF bases (RAF Marham) and the US base at Lakenheath.

Someone was having a bit of fun!

Stand in the center for a few hours then come back and tell us if anything happened.

Netstorm: The pic you showed looks like it could be natural. The pic at the top it clearly from an airplane or something similar. (although I don't know the details of the pic you posted, and that would help. WAS it from a plane?)

Yep...pic is to large to post so I cut out the circles or I would post it. Natural circles?

Well... I wouldn't be inclined to believe they were natural, but who knows.
Thanks for clearing that up

It did look special.

I just got back from work at 6.00pm GMT on 1 March 04.

I live in central norfolk in the UK which is surrounded by RAF Airbases.

I noticed from the end of the trail was an aircraft - I could not tell which type - but it was like a jet figther. I did not get the camera in time to catch it, but it was a small jet fighter like an F-15 or RAF Tornado.

I am aware that there F-15s operate in the area, as the 48th Fighter Wing is based at Lakenheath. Aparently according to locals they do "mess" around alot in the area.

The contrail just slowly dissipated, nothing unusal I hope!

I see strange things like that all the time. Pilots would write things like "I heart you" and "hi" and all sorts of weird designs like hearts, spirals, circles,etc. It's nothing new to me. Nice pice though.....he must be having fun! lol

Yup, it's just somebody doing a wide, climbing turn. What it looks like to me is that the pilot actually wanted to chase his/her contrail...
looks like fun.

I don't believe that this is the same contrail but some 40 miles away on the SAME day this was reported on the local newspaper (which luckily for all those is on the web).

Surely it is irregular to muck out over land particuarly residential areas. I don't mind over the North Sea and Atlantic but it is bit a naughty!

Do you think there the pilot(s) were disciplined?

Here is the other trail Eastern Daily Press Contrail Report

I've seen pictures from Afghanistan like that were B-52s are circling waiting for coordinates to drop on.
