Very clear vapour trail

These photos were taken with my new Olympus c8080 last Sunday, Anglesey North Wales.
I've seen this aircraft four times here in North Wales. It comes from the direction of Ireland and over to Chester. This aircraft flew right over head last Sunday about 12 noon. The thing is there were lots of other jets flying over as well, jumbos, etc. They all made a sound and left the usual vapour trails behind them.

Wow, this is by far the best picture I have seen to date. Now I'm very confused!

Wow, now THAT's a nice contrail photo, HowardRoark

It must be one of those new 747's equipped with pulse-detonation engines. I hear they get great fuel economy, but the passengers have to wear tinfoil beanies to shield them from the bogon rays.

I don't think any PDE engines are in production yet. Actually, I was thinking that the smoke ring effect might be caused by a hush kit add on. Who knows?

Ive seen aircraft from A-340s to Citation Jets make contrails like that.
I think certain conditions cause contrails to form in that fashion

(ill try to get a picture of a similar contrail and post it)

Hi guys, yesterday my partner and I spent a great day back at the location where I took the clear vapour trail picture you've all seen. Beautifull blue sky and fantastic coastline...we both kept one eye on the sky just in case anything came along.
It did.
A 747 in fact. Nothing out of the ordinary at first, we saw it coming along then right over head. We watched it's vapour trail and it was very normal looking...for a while. The aircraft continued away into the distance but to my amazement a long section of the contrail changed into what you see in the above photograph. And I mean exactly!
Now, to make me really take notice another 747 came along about half an hour later and did the same thing.
These two planes took some time for their contrails to change shape as opposed to the plane that produced the above photograph (it was that shape as the plane flew along.)
Well guys...I have to admit it doesn't look good. I thought I had some evidence of a different type of aircraft but it now seems I recorded clear evidence of how amazing nature can be when it plays with wind and ice crystals.
Now that I'm looking up at the sky more I'm starting to see how planes can make very interesting trails and at times no trail at all... then suddenly produce one. Thermal layers and all that.
To be honest...if a 747 can make that trail then I think that's what people (me included) are mis-identifying as being of exotic nature. I only want the truth in life and if the truth is that exotic propulsion is a myth then I can live with that.

Here's hoping aurora lives!
Keep watching the skies and get your cameras out...just in case.
