What we're witnessing is streaks of white with globs hanging off of them, in criss cross patterns, which do NOT dissapate in even 10 minutes, and of course gradually become a white haze on the horizon.

Can you enlighten me on a few points that I disagree with, but would like to know your perspective if you dont mind?
why do you feel that living next to an airport helps with recognising contrails?
What is it about white streaks, criss cross patterns and hanging around for more than ten minutes and spreading into a haze that you find odd? What convinces you that contrails don't do this?
In short, what is informng your opinion?

3) I understand that contrails are mere water vapor... which dissapear sortly after being dispersed.
Classic Persistent Contrail
This is a classic example of a persistent contrail. The plane generating it is no longer in the area, yet this very thin and linear cloud remains across the sky. This contrail is quite thin - definitely less than the width of an index finger - yet it is very clear and continuous.
Note there are also some isolated cumulus clouds in this photo.

Compact Persistent Contrail
This is another nice example of a persistent contrail. This contrail is quite compact and well-defined, yet it has clearly been in the sky for some time since the passage of the plane. Note there is some indication near the edges of the swirling air motions induced by the passage of the jet, but this contrail is holding together very well. While it is somewhat wider than the previous example, it has not exceeded the index finger test. Photo by Carol Clark in Oregon.
if that bit about 75 to 100 miles was even a coherant thought, you would have an easy explaination as to why (living less than 20 miles from ohare) I see them a l l t h e t i m e.
