Did you know that the Boeing 777-8x and -9X (members of Boeing’s 777X series, the next generation of the 777 family) will have such large wingspans that they will feature folding wingtips? The outermost 11 feet of both wings will fold up at a nearly vertical angle, giving it a larger wingspan for better performance but allowing it to fit into the same-size gates as the 777-300.
