Your thread caught my attention because my hubby & I saw the same thing a week or so ago here in the U.S.
We had just come home, were walking toward the house & both of us happened to look up & see it.
We both said, "Look at that", at the same time!!!
We saw the 'jet'? as it made the turn! Lower than usual, no noise, is it called 'banking'?, sharply. The wings would have been at 11 & 5 from our
perspective. The 'U' that the trail made was even tighter, as the ends were parallel. If we hadn't watched it, I don't know if we would have
believed it was possible! And it was like it was in slow motion.
We wondered what was going on, if they had a medical emergency or something. The people must be scared stiff turning like that!
That's when we noticed another, older trail, farther behind that one, same turning shape!
My husband wondered if something had happened while we were out, that all aircraft were ordered down like on 9/11! We hurried into the house, turned
on the TV, but nothing. I checked ATS off & on, but nothing either.....until today!!!!
So what do we know?
We don't live near a big airport.
Not under a major flight path. Most trails we see are pretty high up.
We are not over-the-hill, but at least on the crest of it, & in all that time never saw a turn like that before!
Close enough to clearly see the wings, yet couldn't hear it, even though we usually hear those much higher up.
Lived for 4 years near an international airport, so we have seen a lot of flights.
What we don't know?
How & why!!!!!
And we are very observant!
