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........
