Flying!

A nut (I say this with the utmost of respect, the good kind of nut. Einstein was a nut, for example.) has created a non-official Boeing 737 website.

I ran across it because I finally learned the name of the little wings they're now installing on the various aircraft. Shockingly, they're called winglets. And they are there to spoil some air disturbances created by your standard wing tip. If you go to the site, click on winglets for a huge explanation. I was shocked to find out how much fuel those things can save. I just thought they were there to look cool. Hella cool.
