I don't care who you are, that's a good looking aircraft right there.

Hmmm, maybe it's just the angle but it looks like those wings should be flapping.

I didn't think it was possible to make the Citation X look any better.


I now stand corrected.  cloudnine

I am in the same boat as you... The X looks simply amazing now!

It's nice to see that Cessna have fitted the blended winglet to the X. I would need to see photos from other angles before I pass judgement on the aesthetics however. I think one of the greatest travesties is the flat winglet fitted to some 727's  Sad .

I don't agree.

I agree. That is one ugly mofo, at least from that angle. It's like a narwal with a russian t-tail. And winglets.

Is it just me, or does anybody else also think that these winglets resemble those that were tested on the A320 last year?

That's probably it. I don't like "pimped" things. Yo yo yo!
