Aircraft wings bend while in flight. To see this for yourself, all you have to do is look out of the window during a flight. Beyond a certain limit, these wing deflections become known as Large Deformations. Professor Wolf Krüger of the DLR Institute of Aeroelasticity explains whether these deformations are dangerous, the conditions in which they occur and why modern wings are becoming increasingly elastic.
