Raked Vs. Blended Wingtips

Tue Feb 16, 2010 10:50 pm

Hello, I am interested in finding out how raked wingtips compare to blended wingtips performance wise.

For instance: how do the raked wingtips affect performance on a B764, versus how the blended winglets affect performance on the B763s compared to a B763 without winglets?

I've had a hard time figuring out the concept of what I'm trying to find out so I'm not to sure if this has been phrased correctly, please bear with me !

No problem. I loath the a.net search feature. Much easier to go to Google and use "site:airliners.net "...better results, and faster too.
