New Boeing Aircraft

Sat Jul 13, 2002 1:27 am

Went to the 747 plant 2 days ago and saw the first B747-400ER in Boeing colors on the tarmac. The first NWA B757-300 was also sitting outside and it looks as if the first Alitalia B777 is almost completed. The first 747-400F for China Southern, 747 line #1311, is almost completed and is just waiting to be painted and have the engines attached. Does anybody know the engines it is getting?

The new CI 742 will be getting four GE90 engines.

Hahahahahahah! Just kidding! I really don't know what kind of engines it will get.

The China Southern 747F you saw was the second one for them, the first one was delivered a couple of weeks ago. I've seen a picture of it, and the engines look like Pratt & Whitney to me, but don't quote me on that...

Sorry about my mistake. I also saw an unpainted jet sitting inside the factory but from the paint on the rudder I could tell it is for Alitalia. It apparently must have been in the 777 part of the building since an ANA 767 was in the 767 part. Could that be AZ's first 777?
