Description: When I was about 13 or 14 on lunch break at school I noticed three con trails in the clear blue sky almost directly overhead moving from south to north with me facing west. Even at that age I was interested in aviation so I continued to watch. One aircraft was in the lead with the other two following behind at some distance one slightly in front of the other, when as if moving in a straight line the front aircraft/object mad a perfect right angle turn to the east which mightily impressed me. The following two con trails did conventional turns to follow the first but by the time they completed the manoeuvre the lead had a massive advantage and disappeared in the distance.

Impressed with RAF technology I thought no more about it and carried on playing. Only when I was older did I realise the leading object could not have performed such a turn without breaking all sorts of aviation/ physical principles.

I only report this as my youthful experience might help add up when combined with other reports. This is my first report of the odd sighting.

I am now 67 and hold a CAA light aircraft licence.
