Looking back on flight tracking software I would suggest that the Qatar Airways flight was QTR211 flying at 35,975 feet.

The crossing airliner traffic I believe would have been the higher of the two airliners to the north.
TUI Airways/BY2337/TOM41W flying at 34,000 feet.

Playback of airliner identified as "UFO" in the video. QTR211 is aircraft flying right to left in the playback.

The airliner following the TUI Airways/BY2337/TOM41W was approximately 4,000 feet lower at 29,975 feet.

A lot of the confusion surrounding this video is the dark coloured contrail. It tends to confuse most viewers who suggest that is either a missile or a military jet fighter.

Contrails depending on the lighting conditions can be varied. This can be seen in the following video. See debunk of that video at following link.

Of note on the "Smokers" video is footage of two examples of crossing airliner traffic similar to what is captured in "UFO/Turkey" video.

See from 06:41 in the "Smokers" video

See from 04:05 in the "Smokers" video. (This airliner is obviously closer/longer contrail)

Well, that's clarly an object, but hard to believe it's an UFO.

This can look naïve, but in the 1st minute I'd say that looks like a wing. Not another commercial airplane I hope, but what about a fighter?

Are you sure there's a connection between what you see in the 1st minute and what you see after 1:16? There no continuity between both, at least beyond any doubt.

Maybe pilots had some info about that, but that's hard to get. Also Turkish airspace is subject to tight military surveillance. A strange metallic object would hardly escape, but no one expects any info from military surveillance.

I'd go for the lower aircraft. The time was close to local sunset, and the lower plane and her contrail were more likely to be in the earth shadow.

The only thing I find at all mysterious is how people can look at an airplane and not see that it's an airplane.

(Wow, I'm dangerously tired of amateur videos that go in and out of focus like that. It's worse than vertical videos.)

I vote for the 34,000 ft. one on the grounds that the lower one would be about ten degrees below the horizon (back of the head calculation). Also at 30,000 ft. the conditions for contrail formation are likely to less favourable.2018032112.17220.skewt.ice.gif
