Has the 777x fluttering tests been done?

Or is that the later stages in the testings?

Looks like it’s a double test day today: N779XX filed BFI-GEG-BFI as BOE2, departure from BFI 2PM local.

That flight is filed up to 35,000ft. Will this be the first flight up to cruising altitudes?

No, on May 28, this airplane flew at FL340 and FL360.

It looks like they are trying to get some preliminary high-speed fuel performance (NAMS - fuel mileage).

This is very interesting.

I guess at this time (30 May - 3 June) the role of the two aircraft is.
  • N779XW: handling quality, stability and control
  • N779XX: high speed tests plus avionics??

Can someone please tell us a little bit more?

Flight testing is far more complicated than which aircraft is assigned what. Due to the high risk, crews are assigned a mission, say mid altitude high speed turns. Perhaps two of the test aircraft could perform the mission. Boeing might plan one aircraft for the test, but switch to meet schedule.

Some flight test instruments are very specific for certain tasks. You cannot swap the role back and forth.
For example only one flight test aircraft will be allocated to load survey/assessment and only one aircraft is allocated for fuel performance and only one aircraft is allocated to route proving.

Perhaps load survey and performance can be done with the same aircraft with the proper ballasts (for CG effect). Believe me, you do not want to swap around those huge water ballast tanks.

That's life.

Does anyone know something about the actual measured fuel mileage?
It would be nice if some can tell us the status.

I would not at all be surprised if that information is being held close to the chest (as in being shared with the modeling teams to help update their models).

Wow!! That livery looks amazing with the blue tail, nice touch. Originally didn't like the all-white scheme, but the color pop on the tail ties everything together very nicely. I'm still waiting on the day that one of them flies to VCV for testing, I have a very special shot in mind..... :stirthepot:

Boeing always paint the tail on their basic white test liveries, they are advertising the aircraft. It was white before because it hadn’t gone into paint yet.

I thought maybe they could be for future lavatories (some Airbus frames have windows), but they are all only on the left side (on the right, those areas are blank) so GEUltraFan9XGTF's suggestion makes sense.

If you look closely between the 3 test aircraft that are currently ‘in the news’ (XW, XX, XY) XW and XY have those small ‘windows’ but XX does not, further suggesting that it’s for test equipment. Speaking of differences across the air frames, XW is the only aircraft with the customer tails on the side of the aircraft, and XY’s markings are only the tail, 777X in blue near the nose and 777X near the bottom-rear of the fuselage.

777-9 N779XX filed BFI-BFI 12:30PM - 2:34PM as BOE2. The flight has N779XX entering Oregon and California (for the 1st time) airspace. Filed at 38,000ft at 552mph. Hopefully this signifies a step closer to flying outfield for testing.

It was painted white same time as the airplane. Airplane remained white but tail got repainted. Same as flight test 4 right now. The plane and the tail are painted white ready to go..

As mentioned by RobK on the Boeing 777 Production/Delivery Thread - 2020, the first 777-9 for Qatar Airways, A7-BKA (LN1656), will roll out of the factory soon.

As a side note, it looks like N779XX once again turned back today before reaching the Oregon-California border.

He's wrong. 1647 is in final assembly right now. 1656 is not even joined together right now lol


No, he's not wrong. I'm well aware of the 2 EKs before it that are yet to roll out. It was a heads up that the next 'new' airline on the 777-9 would be appearing soon, ie. in the coming months.

As a side note, it looks like N779XX once again turned back today before reaching the Oregon-California border.

777-9 N779XX filed BFI-BFI 12:30PM - 2:34PM as BOE2. The flight has N779XX entering Oregon and California (for the 1st time) airspace. Filed at 38,000ft at 552mph. Hopefully this signifies a step closer to flying outfield for testing.

It is interesting to note the flight reached or exceeded VMO/MMO.

Was it a flutter test on 2nd June 2020?

Sorry, I do not know. I purely rely on data from about 3-5 sources (some of them might have an insider by the looks of it), but I don't have an 'insider.' Wish I did lol.

According to this it was HPT ACC testing on June 2 (and no, I don’t know what that means but I’m sure someone on here does).

Also 777-9 N779XW is scheduled for stability and control testing on June 4, supported by photo and chase.

HPT like High altitude performance test?
ACC like acceleration capability?

The flight on 2 June 2020 was at around 38,000 ft and the speed varied a lot, accelerating and decelerating during all three phases; climb cruise descent.
I do not know what they were doing. Perhaps they want to confirm the mathematical high-speed performance model.

Can anyone say something about the test of 2 June 2020?

Active Clearance Control -> ACC

^This is correct. This system allows them to actively control the gap between the high turbine blades and the outer air seals to maintain the smallest possible gap. Thats a big factor in turbine performance,

Various news outlets reporting that EK and QR are reviewing their fleets. EK saying that all their orders are off the table. QR wants to defer delivery of their orders until 2022.

How will this effect frames already in production??

Production will continue, regardless. Worst case, they become NTUs and Boeing re-markets them.
