Reykjavík, August 26, 2006. A few photos from the mission to photograph one of the just modified 757-200 for Icelandair. The addition of the small wingtip fins og winglets as they are sometimes called, lessen the drag of the wings and makes the aircraft about 4% more fuel efficient. This adds up in these times of expensive fuel.
