I'm assuming the testing turned out not to be fruitful? Otherwise DC-10s today would be retrofitted with winglets, right?

Omg! Though it was an MD11! These winglets look cooler than what they went with......

Very unique! I've never seen this before, and it's more beautiful than an MD-11.

It has historic value, the photo and the plane are neat and clean. It shows how time change our understanding or the place and the world where we live, represented in the lively -then and now- also the slide and its characteristics utilized to make the picture.
