Any time you see more persistent contrails, and you see the skies clouding over from contrails like that, it almost 100% certain that there is a
weather front close enough to affect them. You may not see the effects from that front, but it's there. The front creates the extra humidity
required in the air for a persistent contrail to exist, and to spread out.
As for the aluminum and others in the ground samples, yes jet exhaust could cause a minor
blip in the amount of aluminum. To put it simply,
even a dedicated sprayer aircraft couldn't carry a lot of material to spray out. The heaviest fuel load I ever launched a KC-135 with was 210,000
pounds, which comes out to around 31,000 gallons of fuel. That included fuel being offloaded into aircraft it was travelling with, as well as the
fuel it was going to burn.
No matter how you try to do it, you're limited to the maximum take off weight of the aircraft, which means you aren't going to be able to cram a lot
into it, to leave those huge trails going all the way across the skies, or to create a huge increase seen in the soil samples.
