That's just an artifact caused by the use of satellite imagery. I'm not sure of the specifics but if I had to guess it is a combination of capturing something traveling very quickly and the fact that the plane is closer to the lens than the ground.

Pretty much every aircraft captured by google maps shows effect. Try searching near airports for more examples.

Looking at Autobahn traffic reveals a similar affect on fast moving cars but reversed color sequence to the airplane... While this is still suggesting speed of motion is an artifact caused by the use of satellite imagery.. My image has a contrail which is literally a non moving entity of moisture and should not produce a the artifact..

It's probably just processing artifacts on the shadow of the jet.
