How the times have changed…

Hello, IFC! Did you know that Airbus actually had two different prototypes for the a320 winglets? In 2014, they tested one of the two, (the one that turned to be unsuccessful) on a JetBlue a320 with the registration of
F-WWDL! Take a look at this picture, and you will be amazed! The winglets almost looks fake!
