Speaking of vapor at the wingtips . . . I tried to do an air show routine with wingtip effects. How? Fuel dump! I'm assuming the -400 still dumps from the tips . . but I don't see the tube out there either.Well it didn't work and my audience was so disappointed. But shouldn't it have? I was hoping for a visible misting effect but there was not a trace of a fuel contrail coming off the tips . . . even zoomed in tight, Are the visual effects of a fuel dump modeled? Maybe there
