First 777-200ER built

Wed Mar 24, 2021 3:42 pm

I'm just curious if anybody has any history on the very first ER version of the 777-200.

First ER built is ln 41, G-VIIA at BA. Currently stored thanks to Covid.

It wasn’t the first to enter commercial service, that was one of its sister ships. Unsure which one exactly, I think G-VIIC (ln 53).

Didn't Boeing call them B777-200IGWs back then? (Increased Gross Weight)

How did this topic get moved? It is not about travel, it is a factual topic about civil aviation and no one is asking if anyone prefers the ER version of the 777 over the A model.
This plane is built to withstand anything... except a bad pilot.

Boeing did call the 777-200(ER) as 777-200IGW back then. Those can be seen in Boeing`s media release released back in the 90s.
And I`m also curious why this topic is in the Travel Forum.

Shouldn't this be preserved in a museum? Or did the museum in Tuscon scrap it?

Tucson.

It's still there. The Tucson Dragway did a cool little video in January where they set up a Hot Wheels track inside it. https://www.facebook.com/TucsonDragway/ ... 233085594/

Probably the last PW powered 777 built as well.
