Possibly also for keeping the area rule for making things nice and slippery when transonic.

Not possibly Andy, fact. If you want the full detail you'll need to spend some money at American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics - Electronic Library Search Results

And seems the G650 will have to stretch its legs to keep up as well. From Aviation International News

First Winglet-equipped Citation X Delivered
Cessna Aircraft yesterday delivered the first Citation X retrofitted with elliptical winglets made by Wichita-based Winglet Technology. The winglets were installed at Cessna’s Wichita Citation Service Center under Winglet Technology’s FAA STC. According to Cessna, the patented elliptical winglets optimize lift distribution, which reduces drag and thereby decreases fuel consumption and increases speed and range. A Cessna spokeswoman declined to provide performance data for the winglet-equipped Citation X, saying this information will be released next month at the NBAA Convention in Orlando, Fla. However, a brochure from Winglet Technology indicates that fuel consumption is reduced by 4 to 5 percent, speed at altitude is increased by 15 knots and range is increased by 150 nm, to 3,220 nm. The winglet retrofit kit, which costs $415,000, includes flight and operations manual supplements and replaces the existing anti-collision and position light system with LED versions. Cessna said winglet installation, which includes structural modification of the Citation X wing, costs $178,000 and takes about four weeks. Plans are now under way to offer retrofit installation of the elliptical winglet STC on the Citation X at all nine Citation Service Centers in the U.S. and Europe.

Beggars can't be choosers, have you seen the size of my cup? I'd gladly take either. No hangups here.

I know it has spinning bits on the top but it's in a fixed wing area.

Where, why and who?

They certainly weren't from Melbourne, they pretty much shut down on the taxiway in the hope that fuel would come their way.

I just stumbled on this Thread. Wish I had found it sooner as I would have posted links to my photos sooner. Guess I was too busy having fun this summer and not spending enough time reading these forums.

Below is a link to some of the flights made in my Amphib Seaplane this summer as well as a couple other planes. Some really cool shots my favorite is the one where we land on a Glacier lake, anchor the plane to a floating iceberg and then a client proceeds to climb to the top of the berg. That one can be found on the third slide show of the “Annual BC Floatplane Association flying” link.

Noel C was well jealous. He got a phone call from Oz when it was taxiing out, just to tease him.
