Those wings do bow significantly in flight. More than any other big jet I'm aware of. Pretty plane. I would love to be along for the ride on one of those demo flights!

...amazing what you can do with the low fuel light on and no seats...

Jetfuel....my kind of test flight
My thoughts exactly, but your "test flights" require the pilot sit on a soap box while depending on fuel of questionable age and octane rating?

Jetfuel, life on the edge.

Many years ago I was talking with a friend of mine after a golf outing who was working at Boeing and he was telling me about a jet they were just developing that could actually bend the wings enough to touch and would take away the rough ride from turbulence by having computers allowing the wings to flex keeping the body steady. That plane is what we just saw in the video.
