When will it get a new winglet? I'm guessing not any time soon with the current situation their in, but who knows.
|Quoting Btriple7 (Reply 2):|
This remark under the picture says that the plane is missing a winglet only on the left wing. Wouldn't this affect the pilots control of the aircraft? It seems there would be a lot of air disturbance on the left side and not on the right.

All seven A332 are needed to fly those Asian routes until a couple more are delivered this fall. N855NW will probably fly this way until NW can scrounge up a 742 or two out of MHV (to cover for the GUM mishap) or an additional DC-10.

incredible no one has mentioned how less sexy the A330 looks w/o its winglet.
|Quoting M404 (Reply 25):|
How did this accident happen? Was it during pushback? In other words was it caused by inexperienced ground crews driving the tug while replacing the striking mechanics? Many close calls have resulted from these new crews.
