Massive and impressive spiroid, yet experimental. Sunset had been a few minutes ago. 10mm, hand-held, buit-in flash triggered.

Nice shoot of the wing tip.....

This particular wingtip is known as a 'spiroid.' A very large part of the drag on a wing is due to the vortices (multiple of the word vortex) formed in the air from the difference in flow from the wing and its tip. Spiroids are one of the best ways to counteract the formations of this vortex. They aren't seen very often on large airliners due to the excessive strain it would add from the extra weight on the end of the wing.

Only saw such things in aero-modelism magazines, not in real life.
