I have been looking at some of the photos and noticed that there looks to be condensation in front of the fans on takeoff. Is this something that develops on all takeoffs or does it just depend on weather conditions? I did a search on this but turned up nothing on the subject. Thank you -Dan

I have no idea what I'm doing...

It depends on weather conditions. The more humidity in the air, the more condensation can form.

Condensation forms with the pressure change as air is sucked in. Lower pressure means that the air can retain less moisture and so it condenses out.
