    While I was getting to work today I've heard an aircraft somewhere over my head. Turned my head up and saw sth like the one on the picture about 1000-1500m above.
    The problem was the sun, shining hard straight into my eyes, so I couldn't see clearly.

    The aircraft was white, so probably passenger one.

    But the wings are bit strange as for a passenger jet aircraft. I didn't see any engines on the wings (honestly - didn't see engines at all), so it must have been a jet. And it sounded like a jet.

    Anyone has an idea, what was it?

    Hmmmm maybe... or maybe not... The sun disturbed really hard, but I think it was rather sth bigger than Cessna Citation. On the other hand I can see on the photo, that Cessna fits perfect. Hmmm...

    Nevertheless - thanks for Your reply :)

    Since you are in Poland, maybe one of the older Russian aircraft like an Illusion passenger jet.

    No, for sure no. I would have recognized it. I know Russian aircraft quite well.
