773ER First Flight - Airliners Will Be There

Thu Feb 20, 2003 2:38 am

The first flight of the new 777-300ER is scheduled for Monday, Feb 24. I will be covering the event for both Airliners (the website) and Airliners - The Worlds Airline Magazine.

Should be a good time  Smile

Jerrold - I didn't make the trip, my g/f went without me, I am going thru a custody battle for my little girl, and my lawyer told me not to go. I am planning on going next month.
