Very cool swirl during early flight. Testing guidance and seeking a target.......

The image in the wftv article is a sun lit contrail of a west bound airliner at dawn. Airliner flying towards the camera looks like it is going up. If you have other footage do share. That image is an airliner.or it is the slowest rocket in history.

Give me the position of the photographer, the time of the images, and yhe azimuth and I can give you the flight from public ADS-B data. It was a commercial flight. I have a candidate flight from a brief search.

I found the flight. It is a Jet Blue A320 from San Juan to MCO. It was flying just in front of ground level sunrise when it was over the Bahamas. It was at 38,000 feet over Grand Bahama as 11:57 GMT. At that altitude it was flying in the sun even though the sun hadn't risen yet in Ft. Pierce. It then began decent into MCO. It was at 21,000 feet when it passed over Ft. Pierce at 12:13 GMT just after local sunrise. The persistent contrail far offshore on the horizon and the short contrail as the plane approached the coast match the heading of the flight exactly.

Activity Log for tail number N523JB. Neat to look at all the places a plane goes and how little time it spends on the ground.

This is the dawn flight from Puerto Rico to MCO on New Years Day. Hit the replay button on the map. It's neat.

Good job, , , ,

Had to be something other than a sub launched missile. Way too south to be in the ETR.

None of our submarine launched missiles have more than one flame plume during first stage flight.
