That is indeed a strange looking cloud, never seen one like that. Wouldn't want any planes going near that!

Nice cloud! Cool scenery for writing or listening to calm and relaxing music.
Its better to be on the ground wishing you were in the air than be in the air wishing you were on the ground. Fly safe!

Likely the formation resulted from the top of a towering cumulus [read "baby thunderstorm"] being sheared off by higher level winds.

That is where a pilot wants to fly with a load of rowdy passengers. Turbulence will calm even the rowdiest. About 20 minutes after that picture was taken, the storm would be more than uncomfortable though.
