Fuel leak, I suppose.

IMO its automatic fuel dump on detection of excessive Weight ( since its take off ). What say ?

Fuel dump ports are located just inboard of the winglets (little "nub" just outboard of the aileron). Clearly the right side isn't dumping and the vapor trail appears to be coming from the left side well below where the left wing dump port is. You can just see the left winglet above the fuselage with it's tip vortex.

Whatever the vapor is appears to be coming from the #2 engine.

The fuel overflow valves aren't co-located with the fuel dump ports. This is very likely to be excessive fuel flowing out of the overflow vents. For example, see this video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=inBaUXyn2l4) where excessive fuel is "leaking" in a 737 (which does not even have a fuel dump system)

Very good. Thanks for the reply! I didn't realize the overflow was a separate valve for overflow.
