Say what you will about YouTube, but not a week goes by that someone doesn't point me at an aviation video that I might not have otherwise seen. That, for example, the Boeing 777 Wing Load Test.
I have seen a few videos of wing stress tests from various sailplanes, but nothing nearly this big before. It seems that no matter how big or small the aircraft is, when the wings start to fail, they really let loose!
