As for being contrails commercial airliners sometimes do produce contrails but they do not last long for they are water vapor. Chemtrails linger they
expand and can cover a large portion of the sky. They do not evaporate like contrails because they consist of compounds designed for a specific
purpose. What they are made up of and what is the purpose is not important for me to know, commercial airliners do not fly in circles and their
contrails vanish rather quickly.
Commercial passenger airlines hire pilots who are trained and experienced they do not get lost. The airline companies would not hire a pilot that was
incompetent and if one ever would fly in circles trying to figure out where he was he would not fly again, fuel is expensive, planes are too expensive
and law suits can lead to bankruptcy.
Contrails persist for hours in some cases, and turn into cirrus cloud cover. During WWII bombers had to fly different routes back to their base,
because the cloud cover from their own contrails had spread and gotten so thick they couldn't see.
As early as the 1920s persistent contrails were seen in the air, and they have been studied for decades. Some interesting studies came out after 9/11
because of the lack of contrails, both persistent and non-persistent.
As for getting lost, pilots rely on GPS and other navigation systems. If they are off, then the pilot is going to get lost, just like anyone else.
There is no training that will keep them from getting lost if their navigation systems go out. I can't count the times the military (some of the
most highly trained pilots in the world) has had to send out another plane to guide one into a base, because their navigation system was out. In fact
it just recently happened with a B-1 and a C-17. The B-1 lost navigation over Afghanistan and had to be guided in by the C-17.
Commercial planes also fly in circles. They're called holding patterns, and can occur at any point in their flight. If they are too close to a
plane ahead of them, they might have to circle to gain spacing. Or if the airport is too busy for them to land, they might have to orbit for awhile
until a space opens up. Or if there is bad weather at the airport they are heading to, they'll orbit for awhile (Avianca flight 52 crashed in New
York because they stayed in the holding pattern too long and ran out of fuel). All of what was described is normal, and everything that is brought up
in the chemtrail debate has been normal as well.
