Mechanics at The Boeing Company began final assembly work on the first 777 Freighter at the company's Everett, Wash., facility this week. The new cargo airplane will roll out of the factory later this month, and work will begin to prepare the airplane for flight test this summer.

The 777 Freighter will fly farther and provide more capacity than any other twin-engine cargo airplane. Boeing will deliver the first 777 Freighter to its launch customer Air France in the fourth quarter of 2008. The 777 Freighter is based on the 777-200LR Worldliner passenger airplane and is built using the same production line as all other models of the 777. Eleven customers around the world have ordered 78 777 Freighters.

Congratulations to Boeing!
The 777F will, together with the 748F, be one of the cargo workhorses in the next two decades. I think fuel prices skyrocketing will favour new built freigters over convertions of old pax airplanes, and new built freighters is basically T7 freighters and 748F. I wonder how A will be doing on that market - the A330 is perhaps a little bit too small for the mainstram, the A350F is great for sure, but faaaaaar away, and the A380F is still vapourware.

Cheers

A350

Great news!
Which engines does the 777LR use? I hope they will not have the same problems as the 77W

777F, 772LR and 773ER are all 777NG's and powered by GE-90-11x which are virtually identical. They work without problems. If there should have been some trouble at the start it's forgotten  spin

C'mon now, you are over-dramatizing it. What 'problems'? If I remember correctly, there have been no more than 10 IFESD on the 77W's in the last year and the press has been on it reason we know about them. Calling that 'problems' is stretching it me thinks.

Anyways, congrats to Boeing, finally an airplane that isn't late.



If you're going through hell, keep going
