It's amazing to see two companies taking a run at supersonic commercial flight. Never expected that after the demise of the concorde.

People have been flipping coins down wishing wells and into fountains for centuries, so perhaps it wasn't strange that an elderly Chinese woman sought to invoke good luck by tossing her silver at the jet she was boarding Tuesday.
Unfortunately she chose to throw her coins from the middle of the boarding staircase into the plane's turbine engine. And she happened to be a pretty good shot.According to the South China Morning Post, passengers who saw her hurling spare change wisely alerted Shanghai Pudong International Airport authorities, who delayed China Southern Airlines Flight 380. The plane sat on the tarmac for five hours while the engines were inspected.
Coins, like geese, can do severe damage when sucked into a jet engine. Had the nine coins that a maintenance crew found in the engine been Hoovered into the turbine, a catastrophic failure could have resulted, according to reports quoting the aircraft's captain.
The local police gave this statement:
"After investigation, the involved passenger, surnamed Qiu, said she threw the coins to pray for safety. According to Qiu's neighbor, Qiu believes in Buddhism."The woman was described as being about 80 and having limited mobility. She was accompanied by her husband, daughter and son-in-law.
She got her wish for a safe flight. The plane arrived in Guangzhou without incident — just five hours late.

That max winglet is pretty dope... I wonder if anyone on here designed that?

BTW I've actually inadvertently seen the airbus "sharklet" equivalent at a supplier and the MAX winglet is so much more sophisticated. You would never be able to tell from the outside but internally they're completely different.
