All airliner wings can flex incredible amounts, as you'd expect when you
think about the load they have to carry.  Next time you're on an airliner
next to a window, just check the wingtip level on the ground, then in the
climb - you'll see the tip move from below the level of the window, to
inline with the top of the fuselage!
