Re: Sod Skegness - Savour Sidmouth

It seems that a fuel priming device failure resulted in the engine running too rich and consuming fuel too fast until it ran out. Insidious accident sequence there...and a great video of a nasty but perfect? landing. (Nasty = the crazy slow speed- was neat to watch). I suppose there's an Evanesque-...

Young 3BS spent some time here. I THINK this photo would be of the Flyover Not_International Airport. and I see no parallel taxiway between the runways.

Re: Boeing Deception: 777X Wing Actually Elongated 787 Wing

By now suffice to say that another proposed name for this device was "wingtip sail".
Why not right-angle-spill-over-blocking-dam-device or RASOBDD?

Re: Boeing Deception: 777X Wing Actually Elongated 787 Wing

OK, I buy the argument that increasing the aspect ratio can decrease the induced drag. But what about the tip vortices? If a wing is simply stretched but has the same form and lifting profile at the tip, it’s going to generate much the same vortices at the tip. I think I am beginning to understand ...

Re: Boeing Deception: 777X Wing Actually Elongated 787 Wing

I thought winglets- to some extent- "dammed up" air that would otherwise spill over the side of the wing and generate wasted energy in vortexes. That is actually a fairly correct description....Now, did you realize that all your and my description works the same if the wiglet is horizontal?... Yes,...

Based on past Boeing parlour observations they simply add them later and then bigger ones and multiple ones.

It is designed to be perfectly flyable and controllable with asymmetric wing folding (for example, if one tip folds midair)
