Re: Boeing 797 Thread - 2019

How long will the 797 be? -6 at 48m and -7 at 53m? Wingspan of 48m? I believe Boeing already suggested the length for the smaller variant would be about 180 ft (55m) and a larger (-7) at 200 feet (61m). But that was at least a few months ago (I forget the source?). These lengths make sense for a 7-...
