Usually I wouldn't post a photo like this, but for whatever reason, it seemed "right" to me. The combination of the lines, sunset, and light just made this photo click for me. Anyways, this little piece of metal costs approximately $800,000 plus installation bringing it to a whopping $1 MILLION per B-737. These "winglets" as they're called, help to save 2-5% of our fuel burn. On average, it takes about 3.5 years to pay for the winglets through the fuel savings. Pretty neat!
