Re: Alternate 737MAX design kludge

Is it lift? or induced drag acting upwards in front of the centre of gravity? I'm not sure if there's a difference.

For all practical purposes there is no real difference, in both cases there is an upwards force in front of the centre of gravity.

How did this get past Boeing?

It didn't get past the Boeing engineers, but it did get past the Boeing bean counters as those didn't pay attention to paper planes and YouTube (no money in those for them).
