Not an expert on the subject here but I believe the only 777's to employ raked wingtips are the -200LR and -300ER; which have yet to enter service. The reflections make the plane itself look pretty realistic though.

Has anyone seen the picture of a UAL plane supposedly flying under the Golden Gate Bridge? I'm wondering if that one is fake.
Yeah that UAL one is definitly fake. The shadow isn't defined enough for it to be real. It also has lighting problems i think, they arent the same in the bridge pic and the plane. Maybe even a little proportion problem.
Actually Doug, I think Boeing is putting raked wingtips on the 777-200LR and -300ER models. According to the Airliners.net aircraft data and history; first flight for the -300ER was this past February, and first delivery will be to Air France in March 2004.
The -200LR was launched in 2000, but delayed until 2006. Boeing claims it will be the longest ranging airliner at 16,417km (8865nm) - 18 hours flying time.

The RJ is slightly more cramped then your transatlantic configurations - but still 18 hours is a DAMN long time.
