N60659 (cn 33782/519) The first 777-200LR, arriving at BFI after its maiden flight from Paine Field. The GE-90 engine, the most powerful in use today, is what made this aircraft possible.

5 passenger windows back from the front, on each side, there's an orange-colored insert with something sticking out of it. What is this? Extra instrumentation for the test flight?
|Quoting Sabenapilot (Reply 23):|
It looks cool indeed, but to be fair, it looks just like any other B777 too me:
an obese twin riding on a rigid wing.
BTW, Is there any VISUAL difference from the regular B777-200?
|Quoting BOEING747400 (Reply 21):|
Engines look too dangerously close to the ground! How high from the surface are they really? The wings ought to be raised higher!
|Quoting Erikwilliam (Reply 31):|
Wich is the major modification besides the range in this 772-lr, wings, engines???

Engine size difference between the LR and the ER

For all those that like to talk about how big the A345/346 engines are...they don't hold a candle to these babies.
|Quoting Sabenapilot (Reply 26):|
Engine ground clearance is only an issue if the distance between the main landing gear and the engine would be greater than is the case here. It doesn't take much imagination to see this plane can land with a large bank angle without risk of stiking the engine...
|Quoting Sabenapilot (Reply 42):|
For its ultra longhaul and for high capacity planes however, the market leader won't bet on reliability alone, but also on redundancy....

Very nice play on words!
|Quoting Sabenapilot (Reply 44):|
Like you say, it's a play on words, don't take it too seriously....

I'm personally happy flying either (meaning both manufacturers and both twins and quads) on any leg.
