He scratched the surface. You have to do it to really understand it. (Aviated all over the western hemisphere in the '50s-'60s.)Posted by BillH at May 7, 2016 6:51 AM
It's a wonderful thing to wake up from a long and deep sleep and be reminded, as this short article does, of the wonderful phenomena that exist on this tiny planet.
Articles like this help me stop for a moment and realize that despite the problems of this world, there exists wonderful things above and below that have more vitality and meaning.Posted by Jack at May 7, 2016 7:31 AM
Sure looks like an Airbus wingtip though, in the headline photo.
Boeing uses a much larger, upward curving "shark-fin" type winglet, while Airbus uses that dual-vaned vortex dissapator type of device, as pictured.
If you're still in touch with Capt. Dave of the much-missed FL-390 blog, might he clear that up for the record?

Psalm 139, a part:
5 You have enclosed me behind and before,
And laid Your hand upon me.
6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me;
It is too high, I cannot attain to it.
7 Where can I go from Your Spirit?
Or where can I flee from Your presence?
8 If I ascend to heaven, You are there;
If I make my bed in Sheol, behold, You are there.
9 If I take the wings of the dawn,
If I dwell in the remotest part of the sea,
10 Even there Your hand will lead me,
And Your right hand will lay hold of me.
