I think that assumption that it's nothing more than just a jet contrail is possibly somewhat premature.
Here are a couple of screen shots of the video located on Youtube
Ignore the large "N" as it's simply a watermark placed onto the video.
It's quite obvious that there is a solid "object" located at the tip of the contrail.
In the next image, it's easily apparent that the object is embedded within the contrail and that the contrail in fact begins just in front of the
object. If it was just a jet contrail, the contrail would NOT be generated in front of the wings.
Here is an enlargement of the 1st image ... note how the object is showing evidence of atmospheric heating immediately in front of it as would be
expected of an object re-entering the earth's atmosphere.
In this enlargement of the 2nd image, this "heating effect" in front of the object is quite clearly evident.
So is this simply a jet contrail ? I don't think so as there is not the slightest hint of a jet preceeding the contrail. In my opinion, this is more
than likely a meteor or some other space junk plowing through the atmosphere, causing the very visible heating effect directly in front of it as it
compresses the atmosphere to very high temperatures.
