Aircraft contrail with clear jet engine tracks

Aircraft contrail with clear jet engine tracks. The aviation contrail here does not look exactly as other air traffic condensation trails in my photos. Contrails all come with unique features caused by the type of jet engines, aerodynamics and weather conditions.

Aircraft contrail with clear jet engine tracks

The aircraft contrail was photographed in Denmark on April 2, 2010, at 5.24 pm local time Odense city. I did not catch the aircraft but the contrail was left a minute or so before the photo was taken. The direction is unknown. See original unedited photo here

Aviation contrail unknown tracks

The aviation contrail here is divided into two sections. Two white dense tracks below and the related exhaust on top that is more transparent. I assume the two white tracks are exhaust directly from the jet engines. The upper part is material from the jet engine condensation trail that has already begun to seep.

Another aircraft contrail example

Below picture shows another aviation contrail also with two white dense tracks in it.
