I recently came across a couple of travel- related videos on youtube that I found interesting and worthy of sharing. One is about airplane fuel efficiency, the other about an airline’s new employee uniforms.
Find out more about the videos and check them out below.
Video 1: Boeing’s Advanced Technology Winglet: Better Wings For A Better Planet
Boeing is increasing fuel efficiency on the 737 with the help of an improved winglet.
The winglet is “a device used to help improve the aerodynamic characteristic of the overall wing. It makes the airplane more efficient.” The original winglet helped improve fuel efficiency by 3.5-4% and they’re hoping to improve on that by up to another 1.5% with the changes being made.
