There's a photo of one of the aircraft available on the World Wide Web;
it's at <URL:>.

Both N510DA and N511DA (pictured) had the Valsan winglets; both have been
reported to have had the modification removed.

As Karl noted, Valsan has since gone bankrupt and it's therefore unlikely
that we'll see this modification installed on any 727s in the near future.
