# What are static discharges for on an airliner? [duplicate]

I have never noticed these on any boeing planes before, so why are these on airbus a320 series and not on the boeing 737 and also what are they for?

• They are static dischargers. See aviation.stackexchange.com/questions/2720/… – aeroalias Sep 16 '15 at 0:41
• This meta question explains how to upload screenshots, it should help you – Pondlife Sep 16 '15 at 1:18
• I think the more interesting thing you got a good picture of in that shot is the nice yellow anchor point for use in over-wing evacuations (see here) – voretaq7 Sep 16 '15 at 1:57

It is difficult to tell by the picture, but they look like static wicks. See this question.
