Well, if memory serves me correctly, for many years planes flew with no winglets, so losing one should not be an issue unless it takes part of the wings with it. I'm sure the plane didn't feel any different.
You mean like walking around with just one shoe on?
Pretty close... If you only wear 1 shoe, it makes it so much easier to walk in a circle in one direction... :)
I live in the Birmingham area & was never on the local news. Only way anyone would have otherwise known of it happening would’ve been if it had crashed.
What an awful attempt at reporting.
You mean, a car-focused Web site shouldn't me mentioning airplanes?
Being that it's about aviation, I for one, am SHOCKED. SHOCKED, I SAY!
