George and list-
   It is interesting this is brought up; I have seen
the same thing. I always thought it to be an optical
illusion of some sort (like a reflection adjacent to
the contrail) in the atmosphere but now George has me
wondering also.
   Hope someone on the list has some good information
covering this.
   Unless George and I are both goofy and seeing the
same things..
