Easy to forget that these are passenger jets, particularly while viewing their full-throttle, lightly loaded runway departures. You’ll never experience a climb like this out of O’Hare!
Interesting that Boeing employs a larger version of Airbus Industrie’s long-used double wingtip extensions on the 737-MAX. You’ve probably seen similar on most jet aircraft – they detach wingtip vortices that increase drag, improving fuel mileage. In Boeing’s first-round test on the previous generation 737, single wingtip extensions paid for themselves in fuel savings within a year.
