I think that MEM-ANC is supposed to be the first. After that they will be replacing MD-11s on many of the longer routes.

It just looks very white, like a wall, because it doesn't have any windows on the sides. Could hardly be more boring, if you ask me.

I like it because its different as far as FedEx goes. I mean the above post is right, its all white which is the FedEx livery so you really can't help that but its really cool to see FedEx 777. Now if we can get Atlas Air Cargo which is my fav. livery all together to get some 777.

It's a freaking freighter. What do you expect?

But the FedEx colors just look "right" on the 777, compared to many of their other birds.

To someone unfamiliar with cargo-hauling by air, how significant will the improvement be of a 777 over an MD-11? Obviously a lot, but in practical terms. What's their average fleet age for their MD-11s? Thanks in advance.

It holds more, has better payload/range, and one fewer engine from a more efficient engine family. Those are all improvements you can bank on.

At first glance, it looks like an MD-11 with the 2nd engine mysteriously missing. Beautiful aircraft, one very worthy to grace our skies.

I agree that brown and yellow would be an improvement on this paint job but, no.

Triple 7 is a great looking bird period. Looks great in FedEx paint, would also look good with a little brown, gold and white if you catch my drift...

Great choice FedEx.

MD-11 will be around for a while with FedEx I'm thinking. A300s have to go first.

They managed to make the 777 look even more boring than usual..


The best contribution to safety is a competent Pilot.
25 Braniff747SP : What version of the 777 is this? Thanks BN
26 Stratosphere : It's a 777-200F better known as a 777-200LR
27 Ikramerica : This is the 777F. It is not marketed by Boeing as the 777-200LR (as it's not one, only based on it) nor as the 777-200F, nor is it called that in tec
28 Stratosphere : Correct
29 TZTriStar500 : Its technically a 777FS2. All the 777 freighters are type certified as 777F series with the customer code added at the end without a dash.
30 MCOflyer : She looks "picture perfect" and the colors fit her just right. Kudos to the painters for doing it just right. KH
31 VZLA787 : OK, so it's not a 777-200LR, nor a 777-300ER, etc, etc. But can you let me know which series is the frame based on? 200-300? And the range, LR or ER?
32 Post contains images FXramper : Had a nice walk around and the a/c is sexy as hell. Yes; 4a2b might see it on ATL-FLL. No; it won't replace any MD ops. I think your the first to say.
33 Stratosphere : Based on a 200LR
34 Ikramerica : Again, it is the 777F. S2 is a customer code, sure, but is not the model designator or version, as asked above. No matter how many times people try t
35 Stratosphere : Thats not entirely true..In the beginning no..After the proving runs MEM-ANC and ETOPS approval. It will more than likely be MEM-CAN (Guangzhau China
36 FXramper : During E-test (MEM-ANC) we'll still run 11's, so there will be no replacement, like I stated previously. We don't run 11's on MEM-CAN, n/s.
37 Aaflt1871 : Let's see your pictures
38 F9Animal : WOW!!! The livery looks awesome on the 777! I love it! I bet Fed Ex finds some great fuel savings with this airplane.
39 Pink77W : if you call it a 77F. I think people will know what you are talking about
40 Brains : You wont see these in brown and yellow when they're parking two newly aquired 747-400's and bringing in 27 more 767-300's between now and 2012. You wo
41 ElpinDAB : I love it! Like Stratosphere said, the 777F is based on the 777-200LR, with the same fuselage length and raked wing tips, however, her range is 4,895n
42 Rdwelch : Agreed!!! I wanted to call it a stallion, but after seeing FXramper's main deck cargo hold,(picture) I'm thinking a beautiful white and purple Clydes
43 Kaitak744 : Does anyone have a delivery schedule for FedEx's 777s? I know that they delayed a few.
44 Res6cue114 : The forgot the FedEx logo on the #1 engine!
45 FXramper : I got an update paper somewhere, but four by EOFY. As stated before, the ETOPS and check rides will run MEM-ANC-MEM and then IND-CAN-IND and MEM-CAN-

48 FX772LRF : Same! I hope they park them on the east ramp next to I-70 so that someday I can see it clearly through the fence. Alas, I'd be lucky to catch it, sin
49 Max Q : Remember, this quoted range is with the maximum allowable payload, far heavier payload weights than a passenger version would routinely operate at. P
50 BlueFlyer : As others have already insinuated, you get to skip a refueling stop, which means major savings in fuel, handling, crew and maintenance expenses, and
51 ElpinDAB : True, but I take it that the max payload range is 4895nm, which would require a transpac fuel stop. I guess, like you said, for some reason, cargo ca

69 EGCC777LR : I think it looks fantastic, great pictures, thanks for sharing!
70 FCKC : Since CDG is a large station for Fedex , will it fly there ? I remember when they have ordered A380Fs , they planned to fly it to CDG.
71 BlueFlyer : So why does the registration have a different model than the TCDS ? Genuine question, not looking to start a pissing contest, just curious.
72 BMI727 : Actually I think that FXRamper is right. I should have been more specific in that I don't think that the MD-11s will be replaced, per se, but rather
73 TZTriStar500 : I'm not understanding what you mean. If you mean that S/N 37721 (N850FD) is not on the July 28, 2009 TCDS, it will be the next time its revised to ad
74 Ikramerica : Exactly. For the Boeing Freighters, the ICAO code has not F or L or anything. It doesn't distinguish the Freighter from the pax version. B763 is both

76 SalMonela : Sorry if slightly off topic but the livery says "FEDEX Express". Seeing as FEDEX is a contraciton of Federal Express, isn't this kind of like saying "
77 Stratosphere : We should be taking delivery in Sept 25th...The customer flight is Sep 21 and the In service proving runs to ANC will start on Oct 3rd I believe.
