Can anyone explain how the mist forms over the wings, is it because of the moisture content of the air above the wing increases greatly due to the drop in pressure?

Due to the drop is pressure above the wing the air cannot hold as much water vapour in suspension as the surrounding ambient air, so it condenses out
