What was responsible for strange plane contrail in sky over Grimsby?
Did you see this strange contrail in the sky over Grimsby this morning?
This picture was taken by a Grimsby Telegraph reader near the Oasis Wintringham Academy this morning and appears to show a contrail stretching straight across the sky, then starting to peter out, before suddenly dropping to the ground.
The woman, who did not wish to be named, said: "I hadn't seen it until the school bus driver pointed it out. It just drops out of the sky.
"It must be over Mablethorpe way. We wondered if there had been a plane crash and I was telling the teachers to put the TV on, but there was nothing about it.
"At the bottom of the trail, there was a strange, orange glow and I could see some black smoke.
"We also saw a smaller plane flying towards it, then it suddenly swung around and went back the other way. It's really strange."
The woman, who used to live near RAF Scampton, said she didn't believe it was an RAF plane, as the contrail was too big and she "knows the noise they make".
She added: "We didn't hear any noise, but I think it must have been a jumbo because of the size of the trail and how high up it was."
Did you seen anything strange? Do you have any ideas of what may have caused the strange trail?
