I believe its a jet breaking the sound barrier. The water molecules in the air expand due to the explosion of sound. I think. I'm by no means a scientist or engineer, or what have you. But I'm pretty sure thats the deal.

Appears to be Anti-Gravi...... opps, I mean condensation in low pressure area of wing under highlift condition caused by atmospheric conditions coming into play as loaded for bear F-16 bottoms out of dive and begins to level off.

i think that it's a sonic boom.

well yes, thats wut i thought at first, but that wasnt wut caught my eye, the cloud condensation begins in the back upward in the upper half of the aircraft and then a smaller cloud appears right before the cockpit canopy ends and covers just the top surface of it.

To me that seems strange, neevr seen a sonic boom like that before.

there are two sonic booms, one at the leading and one at the trailing edges of the wings. hence the two points of condensation.

O, thanks for the update!!

This atmospheric effect does not only occur at the sound barrier, but also a t slower speeds (see famous pic of B2 bomber) it has to do with the humidity (amount sos water in the air) and saturation (amount of water air can holds before precipating it out in water vapour)levels of the air, and more often occur over water
