Contrail with sharp angle direction change witnessed over Plano, Texas!!

I'm driving home from work east on 15th street approaching Independence Pkwy. when I notice a strange contrail in the sky. It was strange because it had a rapid and sharp direction change. It seemed to be originally travelling SouthWest and immediately transitioned to a straight up direction. I don't believe it was an optical illusion as far as the angle of observation is concerned. I DO HAVE PICTURES TO BACK UP MY STORY. I'm not an expert on contrails, but I have never observed one with such a sharp angle before. It seems to me that the G-forces would not be too forgiving on the occupants inside of the craft. I did see the craft travelling at the upward angle, but could not make out a shape and becuase it was daylight, I could not see any lights. The pictures were taken using my Motorola V360 camera phone and so are not the best photos, but you can clearly see the sharp angle. Any info on what vehicle could complete this type of maneuver would greatly be appreciated.
