I will try to explain my take, provided I have understood you correctly. First, the lower left hand photo in my link is the trails from two different
aircraft, one a little way behind the other, from the caption it describes a Hawker Hunter following behind an English Electric Canberra (though we
cannot see them of course) so I don't think its the same thing. The point made in the caption is that the Canberra (a twin jet) also looks as if it
is leaving a single trail like the single engine Hunter it is flying with and that this is due to perspective.
In the video, I do think the centre object is another jet and if one backtracks from its direction of flight it takes you back to where the other
trail ended, from the apparent difference in size between it and the other two aircraft I would guess it is lower, but by how much is anyones guess.
As with the Flight photo of the Canberra, whos engines are widely spaced, perspective seems to have merged the trails together.
Incidentally, and by way of comparison on a slightly different subject. Proponents of the Aurora super secret spy plane have used photos of strange,
round, doughnuts on a rope type contrails to justify its existance whereas this other page from the same article linked below shows this to be an
atmospheric effect on normal contrails more than 40 years before Aurora was supposed to exist. Same effect, different subject.
