Two different planes, but I want to focus on a certain part of the wing. Looking at where the Engine Mount (?) attaches to the wing... The question is this. With the KC-10, there is a rather large 'lip' that sticks out over the Engine Mount. The 757 has one too, but not as big. Thinking of airflow, why not smooth that design so air passes over it easier? I understand you want air under the wing, but I would imagine that these 'lips' disrupt the airflow a bit. Good or bad??
Missed an 'N' in the title. Bad keyboard.
