    My best guess would be curved glass reflections. Look at seconds 5 to 8, the reflections are disappearing down the window.

    That's definitely a camera scanning artifact, caused by the fact that the camera is not scanning the entire field of view at once, and between scanning successive lines, the propeller is moving significantly.
