First 777 for Turkmenistan returning from its first flight. Notice the Ram Air Turbine deployed on the lower fuselage just behind the main landing gear.

This 77L for Turkmenistan is a Governmental VIP A/C, thus lacking some windows.

I also agree, it's nice, but a little bit on the "naked" side...lol

They should've kept their blue striped paintscheme. :)

Aloha from Maui!

The "bland" livery was discussed in the forums. I personally like it. As for Turkmenistan's choice for choosing the 77W, well, I don't see the need for it, but it's their money, not mine. Very good photography.

How to make a pretty plane ugly: give it a bad paintjob.
More boring is hardly possible.

Boeing's painting crew were probably happy when this one rolled into the hanger. Piece of cake!

Forgive my ignorance but, why is the RAT deployed? Surely that isn't normal?!

RAT's are usually only deployed in an emergency!?

How do you identify this A/C? "EZ-A777," aka "easy - a triple seven!" What a handy registration

My guess is that this was a certification flight of some sort. On a video shot that day, the gear doors were open too so they probably had to do a gravity drop.

True, RAT's are usually deployed in an emergency, but I would say also on test flights of a newly produced aircraft when you do systems checks.

This plane is currently in San Antonio, Texas receiving its executive interior at a facility adjacent to the former Kelly AFB.
