This photo of Allegiant Air flight 331 got me wondering: how much weight would a typical airliner's wings be able to hold?
Aside: Apparently these folks didn't realise that if they smell gas in the cabin, they probably shouldn't decide to go out of the emergency exits and stand ON TOP OF ITS TANKS! God forbid one of them gets nervous and lights a smoke!
My question is basically: how much weight are airliner wings required to hold $\div$ the average passenger weight? Theoretically how many people? :)
