Boeing has revealed an all-new and unusually curved winglet on the KC-767 model prominently displayed in its exhibit booth at the AFA convention.
But don’t get excited.
The new winglet design is not accurate and is possibly just a model-shop mistake, Boeing officials insist.
Although Boeing declined to reveal the true shape of the KC-767 tanker winglets, the company’s other official marketing materials have not deviated from the more conventional, straight winglets already certified on commercial airliners.
The new model for the AFA booth arrived with the symmetrically misshaped winglets, and Boeing officials had not confirmed whether it was a glitch in packaging or construction.
This KC-767 winglet is whack
