I'm very sure it's the same aircraft. What is different with this aircraft from other multiple imaged ones, however, is that the photographing aircraft is crossing much more across the 'beam' (side-to-side) than aircraft in other images. Combined with the fact that it's passing almost directly over the aircraft as the image is being taken means that the aircraft in this image appears to shift much more dramatically than the background from side to side between images.

Given the short time between images being taken, two different aircraft would break air control distance regulations.
