They are unrelated. I was just at BFI (Boeing Field) and saw a 737 (-500?) with winglets. It was bare metal, but there was a reg number: N128QS. Anyone have info on this one?
My other question is for any of the strikers. I noticed the plane spotting seems to be better on that side of the field. Will I be harassed too much if I just go there to plane spot? Thank you!

Actually it was a 737-800 you saw with winglets. Boeing is now producing a varient with winglets to increase efficiency.

Actually it was a 737-700 you saw. By simply typing in the tail# that you had written I came up with this. http://www5.landings.com/cgi-bin/nph-search_nnr?pass=22782731&nnumber=128qs

You both are probably right! It was most likely a BBJ, which of course is a hybrid of a -700 & -800. So when you look up the registration, it comes up as a -700, which it is most of. I don't think any of the winglet enhanced -800s are out yet, at least not the commercial ones, maybe a BBJ2.

Last week there was a full page advert for a BBJ, in 'bare metal' configuration in the Financial Times of London. Did anyone else see this?

Wonder who bought it?

No you will not be harassed if you go near the strikers they will be quite civil. Last Sunday I joined by cousin, a striking engineer, on the strike line at Boeing field. All strikers were more than courteous.

Spotting has never been better at Boeing field because they are parking 757's and 737's everywhere. One expecially good plance to see some 737's is down by the Museum of Flight mixed in with the museum's outdoor static display just south of the museum.
