Did I miss something and they are going to put winglets on there 757's or is this a mess up.

Also I was looking through the models and they already have the retro planes and all the planes including 330 in the new paint schemes.

Yes, at least, the Trans-Atlantic 757s will be wingletted.

I am sure to increase range, right? Winglets reduce the drag which increases the range I believe...
Do not bring stranger girt into your room. The stranger girt is dangerous, it will hurt your life.
