  1. I’ve always found the position of the vortex generators on the wing very curious.

    It puzzles me too. I could assume that the vortex generators are closer to the wing leading edge in the proximity of engine and engine nacelle, because, nacelle has “bad” influence on boundary layer causing quite early separation. Then separation improves in the middle of the wing, hence vortex generators are farther away from leading edge.

    But what really puzzles me is why the vortex generators go back to the the leading edge when closer to ailerons. It can’t be so bad boundary layer separation there, since aileron vortex generators are in the middle of the wing. What changes right there?
