The C-17 is the only aircraft I can think of that has high wings and winglets.

Don't ever say "never" !
|Quoting ualbq200 (Reply 1):|
The BAE-146, DH8*, and 328 operate such short sectors and/or are already extremely fuel efficient that it would be counter-productive to install any kind of wingtip device.
|Quoting mandala499 (Reply 11):|
Not just the C295 getting winglets, but it's predecessor the CN235 has got them too!
|Quoting SAAFNAV (Reply 14):|
Even the Touring Motor Glider I fly has got some winglets, even though it isn't a high wing.
I'm pretty sure that it does more harm than good.
|Quoting flynhi808 (Reply 18):|
interesting... i've never seen that. i'm assuming not all amphibians have that?
|Quoting atct (Reply 19):|
Nope. Ive never seen a Caravan with winglets and there are a lot round AK!
|Quoting CALTECH (Reply 13):|
Better looking with winglets.
|Quoting mandala499 (Reply 21):|
I just noticed that the C295 and CN235 winglets are of different designs...
Looks like EADS did the C295 and IAe did the CN235's winglets...
Anyone know of non-IAe built CN235 with winglets? *curious*
|Quoting CALTECH (Reply 22):|
Looks like CASA/EADS went with raked wingtips rather then winglets on the later versions of the CN-235.
