Wallpaper Description:
Clouds and condensation around wings.

The pressure is lower on top of the wings, and more so when the aircraft is pulling Gs. A pressure drop is accompanied by a temperature drop. If that temperature drop reduces the temperature of the air to below the dew point, the moisture in the air will condensate.

The equation PV=nRT, says that when the pressure (P) drops, then something on the other side has to drop also; the temperature (T) drops and this turns the invisible vapor into condensed water just like a cloud.
