I know it's the wing tips, it's just that the headline infers that we will be seeing the fold.

Just another lesson that headlines are noting more than attention draws but unfortunately all that most people read. It's the same as judging a book by its cover.

That's because it's not the entire wing as people imagine with headlines. Take a look at that first picture at the top of the article. That's no winglet. It has joints. That's the "folding wing".
