Condensation clouds formed around the wings of an airplane in this video posted to YouTube on January 28.

The condensation clouds are a by-product of the lift forces which hold the aircraft up in the sky. Lift happens because the air pressure is low above the wing, and a drop in air pressure and temperature tends to cause invisible water vapor to condense into the visible water droplets of liquid which we see as clouds.
