737, 757, and 767 Winglet Heights

Tue Jun 26, 2018 1:44 am

Hey everyone! I had this thought for a while and wanted to know how tall the winglets on the 737, 757, and 767 are when not equipped on the aircraft. Thank you and have a wonderful day!

Thanks for the answers including the link, really interesting that the blended winglets are taller than I anticipated. The 767 winglets actually caught me off guard!

Since the 737 and 757 are different airframes with different wings with essentially the same winglet I'd imagine that one or both would not get as much benefit as they could. Is this the case or does it just so happen that 8'2" is optimum for both designs?
