Contrail Chased by Fighter Jets
The U.S. North American Aerospace Defense Command scrambled fighter jets last week in an attempt to identify a contrail that was first seen near the Turks and Caicos Islands and later over the Midwestern United States. Reports on the contrail were first received around 4 p.m. Wednesday, according to Lt. Cmdr. Curtis Jenkins. Commercial airline pilots reported the contrail over Florida and then Indiana, but there were no more sightings after that.
