    New planes, some flaws are not discovered until a incident occurs
    Boeing 737 Rudder control systems that caused several planes to crash
    Boeing 747-100 Cargo Door Flaws

    these caused the entire fleet around the world to install new modifications to the problem

    from some angles, the design of the wings does look curvy, quite different from some of the older planes. during flight they looked even more so

    In the older days, 747 wings are designed to flex as much as 17 ft at the tip. That was in 1970. Now with better materials , can do more.

    I can't wait to fly on a 787........
