Hi Tod, I think it is because there is enough moisture in the air on a humid day right over the ocean to make it visible. It flashed in/out 5 or 6 times within a couple seconds, but didn't completely form the cone since he backed off the throttle at the last minute. I was just trying to get the plane in the viewfinder, I had no idea that was going to happen but was happy it did.

Of the times I've seen videos of these on YT, they were also over water.
