787 Wing Bend
Nobody's (hopefully) ever going to see the wings flex due to ultimate loading, but it would be interesting to see the graphic for limit loads (4gs, I assume) Gonna be some puckered passengers when that happens.
Amazing, didn't know they flexed that much
Wow! 26 feet of deflection at max load! Amazing.
That 26ft is deflection just prior to structural failure––6g loading if my arithmetic is correct.
Cool. Can't wait for the US carriers to get them.
747 was designed with 26-29 feet maximum wing deflection as well.
