The simple answer is that we don't know how much they can actually take. That's why we have safety margins when designing them.  Smile

But if you ever get a chance, check out imagery of destructive testing of wings. The forces and amount of bending they can sustain before breaking is nothing short of amazing.

Cheers,
Fred
