OK, how about a reply to my own posting?  I happened to be at an open
house in Everett, WA this weekend (where the 777 is built) and saw the
video of the 777 wing failure test again.  The person manning the
information booth there told me the wings flexed 24 feet (not 17 as I
recalled) before failure.
