I might be one of the few but I love the 777 and I really look forward to fly on the 777x.
I always try to choose a seat just in front of wing where I can see the huge GE engine and the wing.
787 have the sexiest wing on the market so far but I hope a fully loaded 777x will flex her wings a lot too.


You are not alone, the 777 is one if not the most beautiful aircraft ever and the best program successful...

Flight Radar 24 shows it turning south over the Puget Sound, having just been over Bainbridge Island. We are watching where it should be, but there are some clouds.

Yeh!!! We saw it, at about 1000 feet, not just a gleam, paint scheme fully visible.

FR24 is showing it at 2000ft over Puget Sound, west of Shoreline, at 130 kts. It's a strange approach...

Edit: not so strange after all considering a landing at BFI.

Seems to have landet at BFI.
This is your pilot speaking. Welcome to flight one from here to there. We'll be flying at a height of ten feet, going up to twelve and a half feet if we see anything big. My copilot today is a flask of coffee.

That wing is huge and those engines! Very Pretty.

I thought the wing would curve more up though - maybe that's because of it's relatively light test weight - vs a full load of passengers.

They sound like they've been sitting out on the tarmac at Everett all this time ^^

Though I guess they're on the apron at BFI now. Not much warmer anyway.

They said shortly after takeoff that they'd be heading to BFI right away.

Pouring rain when pilots step down the airstairs after she was pulled to the hangar. And they don't even spend them some umbrellas.... :confused:
