This is fantastic.
My theory for the mist forming on top of the planes wings and in some other places.. The wings make the air there lower pressure, so its water vapour carrying capacity goes down, and if the air is humid then the water condenses out into droplets !?!?
Also, the bit featured in the preload image.. That is obviously a sky-god who is now enraged after the plane flew through his face! woe be unto you plane flyers!!
Yes that's how it works.

The thing that needs explaining are those long lasting vortex ribbons

Mr. Purple Cat Esq.
my theory for that is that is it essentially the same effect. As the plane flys through the air it creates these two giant vortices in the air along-side it. the ribbon bit we can see is the low pressure centre of a vortex. The effect lasts a while because the vortices are really big* and powerful and it will take a while for the air in them to stop swirling.

*In this video when the plane goes through clouds. like in preloader, the vortices are huuuge, like way bigger than these massive passegner planes.

they're chemtrails, DUH

your theory is wrong, the large vortices are generated above the wingtips, you can see it at the start of the video.

Mr. Purple Cat Esq.
Well my theory is that the *centre* of a vortex is positioned at the wingtip, but the whole vortex itself is being created by the entire wing and plane body. We could just go look this up.. In fact I will.

Mr. Purple Cat Esq.

yeah I know how they're formed from wingtips, but that's not what I was talking about.

From looking around it looks like flaps generate a much greater pressure difference because of their angle and that creates a tighter vortex than the wingtips.

Who knew chemtrails could be as beautiful as they are sinister and totally real?

Protip: Avoid wake turbulence if you're in a small plane following a large plane.
