Great photo... I once heard that the diameter of a 777 engine is the same size as a 737 fuselage... may not be true but from the looks of this photo is certainly
plausible.

This photo confirm Me one thing that I've listened some time ago, the diameter of the 777's turbine is the same diameter of the 737's fuselage, and this photo shows perfectly it. Congratulations!

A fine GE90-115B. 115,000 pounds of thrust and the same diameter as the 737NG fuselage!!! What a monster, and a great shot, too!

That is one truly amazing shot and does capture the true size of the 777 in general, not just the engines.

I just realized that the day this picture was taken, I was staring at it from inside the terminal ready to head home. Very nostalgic for me, as it was my first trip outside of the US, and I also took a few pictures of this very aircraft myself. Thanks for bringing back the memories for me!

I think the very fact that you can actually troubleshoot or inspect this huge engine through such small spacse, is more amazing than just the massiveness of it alone. Great capture.

Same size as fuselage cross section of a 737... that means the turbofan is approximately 3.6 meters in diameter then. Well, let's say: twice the length of this bloke. Yep.
