Assuming this planet is fairly round, and turns on only one axis, we are still headed to where that contrail came from.
I've been creating and consulting a star-chart on my flap here, and I'm pretty confident in my sense of direction now.
Oh. That's a star chart.
At least now I know you're not just flashing me.

Good morning! How was the hobby-trip, sir?
I built that primitive jet-turbine aero-craft myself, and then flew it all the way around the planet.
No civilization, no safety interlocks, and no mid-air refueling! That was no mere hobby-trip! It was a forty-two thousand kilometer statement of my personal might!
Was your adventure invigorating, sir?
I feel refreshed and grouchy.
