My Encounter With A 777-300!

Sun Jul 04, 1999 4:50 am

Yesterday at the airport I work at, which is Idaho Falls IDA, Boeing brought in their 777-300 prototype for some wind tests...I was fortunate to go on board and look at all the test equipment, and even sit in the cockpit! It was one of the coolest things Ive ever done!!! What a great airplane!

They were doing cross-wind landings, and 20knot tailwind take offs...
