Do 717's have winglets?

Wed Dec 09, 1998 8:46 am

Hi all! I was wondering if the 717/MD95 is going to have winglets?

If anyone was wondering why I haven't posted any posts lately, it's because I have midterm exams starting this thursday and they're running through next wednesday!

See ya later,

That's a negative! Finals suck so get good grades
before the finals so you don't have to sweet
like a pilot shooting the ILS with no navs!
That's my theory! It works (3.8)!!!

FedEx, your theory works for me also. I usually get about a 10% lower grade on finals (I still try though), but that doesn't matter because I work really hard during the year. I've been pulling a 4.0+ (weighed classes) ever since I have gotten a GPA. My midterms don't start until mid Jan.

Being a completely new design, it's likely that the wingtips were designed efficiently enough so that winglets were not necessary--like the tips of the 777's wings. I don't think that we'll see winglets on any more brand-new designs.

As of now, the 717's wing is clean.

As you probably know the Boeing web site has many great photos of all its aircraft including a GREAT screen saver. Its free and it has all their models.

Good grades now will pay off later in life especially if you are interested in flying. I know I sould like a parent but doing well in school is so important to your future.
