David,

The experiment that you hypothetically pose IMO isn't practical, and the dependent variable "changes them," is not so easy to define. If the independent variable is the activity of the planes on the jet stream, are they going to cause the (dependent variable) winds to change course, change speed, change shape, or what? We know that the jet stream will change anyway, so what ever change we attribute to the planes needs to be separable from the "natural" changes.

As I mentioned already, I think data is already available which makes your experiment unnecessary--even if you could get support to carry it out. We have in flight archives a great deal of information about every flight all over the world. We may be able to use the flight journal information to separate measurements of jet stream wind speed (for example) when the plane was inside and outside the jet stream.

Differences in wind speed would be evidence for an influence of the airplane on the jet stream.
