Some business jet aficionados might argue that the first passenger aircraft to have them was the Learjet 28.
|Quoting Polot (Reply 1):|
Nasa. They tested them on a CO DC-10
|Quoting VC10er (Thread starter):|
And I am only referring to passenger aircraft. Which aircraft type was first to incorporate or add them? I cannot recall if it was the MD-11, or 747-400 or an RJ.
|Quoting 26point2 (Reply 5):|
Reference to the RJ's winglets...the RJ is a derivative of the Canadair Challenger 604/601 biz jet which has always been equipped with winglets since built in the mid 1980s
|Quoting ferminbrif (Reply 12):|
Is it right (or not) to say that Phantom F4 had winglets????
|Quoting lostsound (Reply 3):|
First commercial aircraft to standardize a winglet device would be the Airbus A300/A310.
|Quoting DocLightning (Reply 14):|
I wouldn't call the Airbus wingtip fence a winglet. It's a wingtip device, yes. The first major commercial airliner with winglets was the 747-400. It was followed very closely by the MD-11.
|Quoting Trijetsonly (Reply 15):|
In that case you should also think about the Ilyushin 96.
