Can you tell which aircraft and airlines these winglets belong to?

On the blog, I have done five Ultimate Livery Challenges and even one Landing Gear Contest. I decided to do something a bit different — an Ultimate Winglet Challenge. I have to admit that this one is probably the hardest on my end. Many winglets are just a plain color and many airlines look a like. The point was to try and find winglets that you might have a chance to identify the aircraft type and the airline, without being too easy, nor impossible.

Yes, I had to blur a few identifying numbers and words — sue me (actually don’t please). You uber AvGeeks might also notice which winglets that I flipped horizontally because of the nav lights. I just want to let you know that I know that you know.

No prizes on this one (other than getting an epic shout-out and link to site of your choice on the answer blog). For those of you who have not played before… here is the deal: take a look at these winglets, figure out what KIND OF PLANE AND WHAT AIRLINE THESE WINGLETS BELONG TO and then email your answers to (no, I am not signing you up for any spam). Even if you do not know all 10, make your best guess anyhow. Please do not leave any answers in the comments (I will have to delete them), but questions are always welcome.

I will keep the contest open until Sunday the 8th until about 5pm (give or take). Give it your best shot and good luck!

No 1 is pretty tricky

That was easy. For you next contest how about, “DOORS.” That is, main cabin entry doors, usually door 1L, from pressurized airliners. Both U.S./European and Eastern Block types. And we can go narrow-bodies, regional jets and wide-bodies. And the door can be opened (on the ground) or closed (airborne) but no logos please.!

Very neat blog. Will read on…
