    Hi Adrian,
    
    If you contrast-enhance a close up of the plume you can see the silouette
    of a plane at the very top. The sun is illuminating the contrail from the
    right, causing it to make a shadow on the left of the contrail where it is
    thickest near the plane.
    
    Regards,
    Andy Smith G7IZU.
