If you've seen photos of the 787 in the air, you know that the wings sweep up in flight. I did not realize they also did that on the ground. Or at least I think they do. The upward sweep is clearly visible in this photo, but if you look at the photo above with the front view of the plane, you'll see the wings appear to be horizontal. Flat from the front, curved  from the back; it's an odd illusion.
