The Split Scimitar Battle

The Battle of the Split Scimitar Winglets

I’ve been on a couple of flights recently on some Boeing 737’s and I and my alternate videographer have gotten some beautiful photos of the split scimitar winglets. We were wondering which one looked the nicest so we’d like to get your input. I also threw in a 767 winglet without the split scimitars to make it interesting.

Thanks for viewing!


These things are huge, I’m always amazed by the size everytime jets come close when spotting.

I believe the old United Contential looks the best, That old grey, white, gold looks amazing.

@Q-ENAN Yes, they are much larger in person that they appear to be from a screen. When I got access to one of United Airlines’ maintenance hangers, I felt like the 767’s winglet was 20x larger than me.

@Dlva158, the UA Continental does look very nice in my opinion. Still think that both SWA ones look better though
