I've heard a rumor several times that the size of a B777 engine is as big/bigger than the fuselage of a 737. Is that correct?

Gdabski once had a photo of this BA 737 next to a 777 engine on the net, but I'm getting a "page cannot be displayed"... try emailing him, he might still have it  Smile

Yes, the nascelles of the GE90 are larger in diameter than the fuselage of the B737. The PW and RR engines are smaller.

Does anyone know the differences in size between the different 777 engines?

There are four generic engines available on the 777-

Ge90 (123-inch fan)
PW4000 (112-inch fan)
Trent 800 (110-inch fan)

Ge90 (123-inch fan)

Fan blade is one thing... but the engine's diameter in total is up to 135in.




As for the requested pictures of size comparison:

There is no way that it could be bigger than the fuselage of a 737... Look at the picture! There is one man standing there. Raise him up a few feet for cargo area, and the floor of the cabin obviously, and you'll see that there is no way that you will be able to fit 6 seats and an aisle, AND overhead bins.... it might be close to the size, but I find it impossible.... anyone else share my opinion here?

I was actually just curious if it was true. But yes, I'd be interested in a pic.

AA777~ it could be possible. I was talking about diameter of the entire engine. If you look where he's standing, it's almost one foot thick of cowling, and it's that way all the way around.

I looked at the numbers awhile back...the GE-90-94B's diameter is 134 inches, and the GE-90-115B's diameter is 135 inches. 737-500's outer fuse diameter is 13 ft 2 in, or 158 inches. Data taken from the websites of GE and Boeing, respectively.

Still, it's one big mf'ing engine.

Edit: the 737's interior cabin diameter is 11 ft 7 in, or 139 inches, so that's closer (but still bigger) than the engine.

Living in the Seattle area, once in a while you'll see a 777 engine being transported down the road (or other smaller enginers). It's pretty impressive.

Any pictures of those strange transporters that Boeing uses? It is always weird to see the guy sitting in the back BELOW the main structure to steer the rear wheels of the trailer.

Does this mean that a 777 can taxi past a 737 and have it's wing go over the body of the 737? That would be quite the site to see. So when they say look for FOD do they mean 737's for the 777 pilots? I have indeed been in a UA 777 engine and the damn thing is like a studio apartment.

Thanks again.

Hi KDTWFlyer:

Nice pics  Big thumbs up

But that is not the GE90 correct? I see that the fan have different shape with the GE90.

BTW, anybody know what airplane the GEnx is for? Is it bigger than GE90?
