I’m gonna kinda get off the crash here for a minute. What is that twin jet in the back ground of the pic? And I noticed it had the things on the wing, I forget what they are called, but I think they line out the airflow on the wing or something, but anyway, I don’t think it’s American made???
If you’re referring to the structures on the trailing edge of the F28’s wings, those are flap track fairings. They provide for improved aerodynamic flow over the flap tracks/screwjacks while also protecting these components from weather-related contamination.
