ok a few random observations :
1 - by your own admission - you had a mobile phone with you - but cannot provide a better time frame than a 1 hour guesstimate ?
2 - you didnt ACTUALLY see the craft you allege was responsible - so how do you know that the contrail is " evidence " ?
3 - as you didnt report a sonic boom event ` real fast ` was actually sub sonic - which isnt very fast at all - or were you comparing speed to the take off / landing speeds of aircraft @ the airport ?
4 - had you been drinking ? - i know its already been asked but had you ?
5 - what is your estimated altitude of the contrail you pictured ?
thats all for now

Probably fighter jets.
We used to get them at our airport all the time, and they are not only fast and small, but they are loud as heck from behind. The astronauts used to do touch’n’goes on our runway with those little white training jets on occasion, and if you did not see them coming, they would scare the heck outt’a you. Perfectly silent until they are already passing you, and by the time the noise hits you, they were already climbing out on afterburners, and shooting up like a rocket out of sight.

yeah, most trails i see are high, and i usually see a jet making them....this trail was pretty low...on the second image, you can kinda see how low it is by the tip of the tree on the bottom left of the pic....
