The wing of an Easyjet passenger aircraft (Airbus A319/320) during landing at Paris Charles de Gaulle airport. The image shows extended flaps (to provide lift) and erected spoilers (to act as air brakes). The wing tip is upturned in a structure known as a winglet, which improves aerodynamics and thereby fuel efficiency.
