https://youtu.be/q0hEZDLsiF8Aviation Week editors recently saw a demonstration of the folding wingtip at Boeing’s Everett, Washington plant. The target time for extending and/or retracting the wingtip is 20 sec. Listen closely when it reaches the selected position to hear the locking mechanisms engage.
Intersting, so it's becoming reality. Honestly, I thought it would end similar to the proposal they made years ago ... no airline ordered this feature at that time.
