Doug Campbell: Pilot did make turn - and it's a Big Deal

Doug Campbell writes:
The contrail indicates the jet made a turn which would be required in order to stay on the Jet Route that the crew had been assigned to fly. Altitude assignments and routing are a big deal in our business . . . we work real hard at being where we are assigned to be. :) - Doug Campbell

Turn right over Columbia?

2015-02-05 - City Limits, Dillon Street/Pelham Branch Road, Columbia, KY - Photo by Ed Waggener.
On a most stunningly beautiful Wednesday, February 4, 2015, couldn't help but wonder about the contrail at the right of the Columbia City Limits sign. It appears an abrupt 90 degree turn was made by the aircraft in upper left of the photo. How did it happen. Don't know, but perhaps local aerospace enthusiasts can enlighten us, despite the into-the-sun, poorer quality photo. Apologies. -EW.
