RE: Winglets For C-5?

In a word "no" winglets are not in the future, The C-5 wings have already been modified that was done in the 80"s when the B models were delivered, all the A's had the wings replaced. As of now the wings are not designed for winglets and the benefits of winglets would be negligible for the C-5 wing.
