Is the raked wingtip style different among current acft using it?

Thu Jan 16, 2020 4:26 pm

Well, i'm far from being a techie or an expert at that, i'm just relying on my perception when looking at images but i realize there apparently are variations in the shape of the raked wingtips if you look at 779, 748 and P-8A. (Am I missing any other model?)

Just wondering if i'm mistaken or not and if someone with technical background can enlighten me.

The first raked wingtip/winglet I saw was indeed a 767-400.
