Since there are a few of you on this site, I thought I'd ask. Is it just me imagining this or does there seem to be a lot more flex in the 787 wings vs. current aircraft in these pics/video that was shot on its first flight today? Is this just a function of the composite wing?

It's designed that way, not due to the material, which is actually stiffer than the traditional alloys. :thumb:

It's something you'll see on most new designs in the future.
