Submission + - Mystery missile: it was US Airways Flight 808 (

sean.peters writes: The mystery missile discussed on Slashdot yesterday: it was US Airways 808 from Honolulu to Phoenix. An amateur sleuth checked the time against airline schedules, then the following day, checked out a webcam that was trained in the appropriate direction. He found the exact same contrail at the time AWE808 was coming over. The author deals persuasively with a number of objections to his argument.
