Any A320 Experts? - Wing Design Question

Recommended Posts

Hello fellow Aviation-Enthusasts,


while spotting today I noticed some differences on the A320 wing to fuselage connection.

(I'm sorry but I don't know the correct term. But hopefully someone will tell me)


Both pictures are taken from the "almost" same position. Did Airbus change the Design over the years or is it really just an optical illusion? I tried to compare both aircrafts from different angles but the result was the same.


1. Aircraft: A320-232 SX-DVU, MSN 3753 / 2009

2. Aircraft: A320-232 SX-DNE, MSN 7014 / 2016 *sharklets*

As you can see, the newer one has a more *wavy* connection.


Thank you in advance :)

Yes, the A320 design has changed, and among the changes made was an improvement to the wing root fairings. For more info on this, do a search for the A320E (enhanced).
