Wing condensation

Description

Wing condensation is a phenomenon that occurs when moist air is cooled to a temperature below it’s dew-point. When an aircraft wing produces lift the air pressure over the wing is reduced. As a result is the air temperature reduced as well, and clouds may form.

(This phenomenon also happens in other parts of the aircraft such as the engines and the wingtips).

I wanted to try to recreate this phenomenon in 3D with Phoenix FD to then give more realism to my future 3D animation.
