what aircraft could be used for high altitude recon? The following applies! f-4, f-111, f-14, f-15, f-16, ea-6, f-18, with appropiate pods attached of course!and then there is 707 Jstar, Global Hawk, SR71 Black Bird , and though not verified but considered operational by some, Aurora, TR-3 Black Manta. Does that satisfy your query. Since it left a contrail, it has to be a jet engined reconnisance platform.
