Aircraft contrail transforms into Cirrus cloud type is evident in the following photos below. An old aviation contrail simply ends out in the Cirrus cloud type just above my flat. The photography that captured these amazing clouds was done in Denmark on August 19, 2012, in Odense city at 8.22 pm local time.
If you follow the contrail in the above photo to the top of the edge, you´ll see it ends in what looks like the Cirrus cloud type. It is Cirrus clouds with long strands but without the typical hook in one end. These are just long strands here.
The Cirrus cloud type forms above 16.500 feet and up to 45.000 feet. Aircraft contrails are left at altitudes between 27.000 feet and up to around 40.000 feet. So the area where Cirrus clouds normally form is the same area where aircraft condensation trails are left. And if the Cirrus weather system rules, the contrails may transform into the Cirrus cloud type.
Cirrus clouds with hooks
If you follow the contrail downwards in the top photo, you´ll see a small cluster of Cirrus strands with hooks. The picture and illustration below that have been magnified for your eyes only, shows the area so you better can see what I am talking about.
I am no weather expert or meteorologists but the only cloud type that matches what I see in my photos here, are Cirrus clouds.

UFO in the contrail photo
In one of the contrail photos here, there was an unidentified flying object (UFO) out in the distance. Since it seems to be partly inside the mist from the contrail far away in the photo, it must be well away in the distance. That makes it to a pretty large unidentified flying object. And it looks like Homer Simpson´s cartoonish face.
