Demo hornet pulling into the climb and the sun...CIAS2016
This is a cool shot! Yeah!
I love it! Anyone able to explain what causes the moisture above the wings considering I see no clouds in the sky?
I'll take a shot at the appearance of condensation, speed of air trans-versing the upper wing (causing lift) is faster or speeded up. Not aware of technical terms.
Can the polit see the vapor over his wings & does it bother him.
Air condensation due to relatively high G loads. The air on the upper wing surface is faster than the one flowing below, causing a drop in its temperature, therefore the humidity present in it will condensate and appears visible.
Mskiro is correct..also high speed causing a rise in surface temp..alas condensation. ð
It condenses water in the air briefly when the airfoil creates low pressure over the wings.
Wow! What kind of camera do you use, may I ask?
