Location: Winchester, KY
Shape: Unknown
Duration: 10 minutes
Characteristics: The object left a trail
Craft trailing smoke from 2 engines.

I was driving home from work on I-64 between Lexington and Winchester in the eastbound lanes. What I saw, and recorded on my iPhone, appeared to be a twin engine aircraft that was trailing black smoke from both engines. It appeared to be around 20,000 feet in altitude and moving in roughly the same direction I was east. It moved slowly like an aircraft across the sky. Obviously not a UFO, although it was too far from me to confirm any details. I just thought someone should know about this event. I am a private pilot and know the difference between a contrail and smoke. This was smoke! I have pretty good video footage.
