777 Engine Comparison To A 737 Fuselaje

Mon Jul 08, 2002 11:10 am

I've HEARD but not WATCHED about the similar size of a 777 Engine and a 737 Fuselaje.
Is here any picture that can show this at A.net ?

Thanks

I have a book here at home - 'Boeing 777' by Guy Norris - which shows the following picture (you can also find this one in one of the two threads mentioned by AKelley728):



There have been lots of discussions whether the 737 and the engine are really facing each other instead of the 737 standing closer to the camera and so.

Don't forget the 777-200LR/-300ER will have GE90-115Bs, which have an even larger fan diameter than the current GE90.

737-600 interior cabin width 3.4m

GE90 fan diameter 3.25m

One sounds as big as the other to me...

There was a program on public television just before the 777 went into service; on it there two comparisons with the 737. First that the engine nacelles on the 777 were about the same diameter as the 737 fuselage; second, the horizontal stabilizer span (that's the tail wing for all those knowledgeable journalists out there in La La Land  Wink/being sarcastic) on the 777 is the same as the wing span on the 737. Sorry for the sarcasm, the devil made me do it!!  Acting devilish NOT!!
