During some of the test flights I noticed them wings flex a little more than current jets designs.

Be a great sight from the passenger seat windows. :-)

Thanks for sharing.

We should have them in the near future here at DFW. I'll be lookin to ride in First Class someday.
It gets uncomfortable pretty fast, but it beats driving. A movie is a nice distraction.

When they ran that test on the 777 they did one final test where they kept bending until failure. A bunch of us Boeing employees were allowed to watch. It seems they have gotten more concerned with safety since then as I didn't see anybody standing around on the floor during these tests.
