  • Published on Jul 4, 2018
  • Boeing 777 - a family of wide-body long-haul airliners, developed by Boeing in the 1990s. Triple sevens are the proud owners of the title of the largest twin-engine aircraft in the world.

    The 777 programme was when Boeing seemed to be a straightforward friendly and honest company. We believed in it because the people involved in its design and production programme seemed genuinely enthusiastic and believed they were making the best thing since sliced bread. And they were, and we believed them because we LIKED what we saw at Boeing.
    At the time Flight Sims were booming and aviation seemed to be blossoming in every way. It was a great time to be around aircraft. I want those times back.

      Law of the UniVerSe I recently flew to Manila too on a 777-300ER. Mine was from JFK though and I connected in Hong Kong. I initially dreaded a 16 hour flight but once on board and settled in to my seat it wasn’t bad at all. Cathay Pacific is a wonderful airline.

      It's also MUCH heavier.. heavier aircraft are generally smoother with less turbulence. Also you forget that well trained pilots make all the difference in the world. A great pilot will make a 737 or A320 take off smoother than a novice pilot in an A380. You can't compare Apples to Oranges.

    Beautiful? Design wise a generic twin engine aircraft. I mean it’s a technological marvel but beautiful? Na

    • dredeth
      dredeth 14 hours ago

      +Jimmy Gee beauty of choices is that I think the opposite. To me those, what you call generic are the actual beauties , simple looking. Without too many unnecessary shapes added. Never liked that 747 bump or a tiny cabin shifted above the longitudinal axis or a weirdly placed engines that some of triplets had. L1011 looks like is having a cancer on a vertical stabilizer for example.
      When it comes to an aviation design the simplicity is what creates the beauty for some of us, that's why we find 777 the most beautiful.

    • Jimmy Gee
      Jimmy Gee 19 hours ago

      dredeth L-1011 is probably the most beautiful aircraft ever made. The DC-9/MD-80/MD-90/717 is still flying and it absolutely gorgeous. You still see the DC-10/MD-11, also gorgeous. 727 gorgeous, 747 gorgeous. The current plane design while most efficient is all pretty generic these days. The 787 probably takes the cake when it comes to slightly better than generic twin engine aircraft design. The CS/A220 family is also up there. Outside of size the 777 isn’t anything special aesthetically

    • dredeth

      Can you please tell us which one isn't generic and which is the most beautiful then?

  • Tom Seeberg
    Tom Seeberg 17 days ago

    Absolutely a masterpiece the triple sevens, but the market is probably not ready for much more of them. Boeing has produced 1600 pieces of them through the yrs and it is a lot of them flying. It has been a sucsess all together, but they will phase out the 300ERs now and focusing on the 777X models. But the thing is that the orderbook is definitely not full and there is only a few companies that has ordered them. So I think it will not be produced so much of them the next decade and Boeing will focuse more on the 787-8-9-10s. I,ve heard that the first 777-300ERs has done their job and has ended up in a scrapyard now. The came around in 2003 with Air France. So I don,t think many companies will still be stuck with aircrafts that is two decades old today. It is also a moment where Boeing has to think in a new way of building aircrafts and wich of them can they still produce.

I know they don't test failures because that's too dangerous, but I also know that planes since then have been fine when emergencies happened. So how did they actually make this decision definitively?

    I always love to see ppls responses to the 777 as it makes me SO proud of my dad as my dad designed part of the 777. He dealt with their radar systems/radar dome, GPS, antennas, and communication systems. Of course like normal most of these were originally created for the US military and then modified for civilian markets.

    Computerized Machining has been used in making Air Bus planes already so long ago that Boeing desperately tried to catch up and repetedlly failed trying to make B-737 Ng , by the time they almost got it almost right their experiment with computer - pilot interactions in B-737 MAX 8 ended in disasters and international disappointment.

    Great video, Interesting to see all these new models. My biggest complaint is over the years the passenger seats are getting smaller and smaller. The seats pitch & legroom is always evaporating in the pursuit of cramming as many seats onto the aircraft as humanely possible. There should be industry minimums of legroom between the rows and seat pitch. I would even suggest minimum seat widths. However that's never going to be because Boeing will always promote their aircraft carrying 400-425-500 pax.

      And, we have NEVER received transcripts and data from the Ukrainian air traffic system. Better think before you comment.

    Flew from Istanbul to NYC in a Turkish Airlines A330 and back in Turkish 777 (I think it was the 300ER version).
    Compared to its rival A330, the triple 7 is way roomier and more comfortable. Especially it's cabin design is a class of its own.

    The production of the Airbus A380 will be missed. The rapid demised of the A380 is a complex tale of missed connections, changiing markets and ultimately, a staggering lack of demand for the largest commercial airplane ever built. And as, a result, this giant of the sky could very well be the last of its kind.

    The official report on the BA 777 that landed short at Heathrow.
    Whilst on approach to London (Heathrow) from Beijing, China, at 720 feet agl, the right engine of G-YMMM ceased responding to autothrottle commands for increased power and instead the power reduced to 1.03 Engine Pressure Ratio (EPR). Seven seconds later the left engine power reduced to 1.02 EPR. This reduction led to a loss of airspeed and the aircraft touching down some 330 m short of the paved surface of Runway 27L at London Heathrow. The investigation identi ed that the reduction in thrust was due to restricted fuel ow to both engines.
    It was determined that this restriction occurred on the right engine at its Fuel Oil Heat Exchanger (FOHE). For the left engine, the investigation concluded that the restriction most likely occurred at its FOHE. However, due to limitations in available recorded data, it was not possible totally to eliminate the possibility of a restriction elsewhere in the fuel system, although the testing and data mining activity carried out for this investigation suggested that this was very unlikely. Further, the likelihood of a separate restriction mechanism occurring within seven seconds of that for the right engine was determined to be very low.
    The investigation identi ed the following probable causal factors that led to the fuel ow restrictions:
    * 1) Accreted ice from within the fuel system1 released, causing a restriction to the engine fuel ow at the face of the FOHE, on both of the engines. 

    * 2) Ice had formed within the fuel system, from water that occurred naturally in the fuel, whilst the aircraft operated with low fuel ows over a long period and the localised fuel temperatures were in an area described as the ‘sticky range’. 

    3) The FOHE, although compliant with the applicable certi cation requirements, was shown to be susceptible to restriction when presented with soft ice in a high concentration, with a fuel temperature that is below -10°C and a fuel ow above ight idle.
    4) Certi cation requirements, with which the aircraft and engine fuel systems had to comply, did not take account of this phenomenon as the risk was unrecognised at that time.

    Had the Concorde been in wide use, I might agree, there were just 12 in the liveries of Air France and British Air and during the majority of the Concorde's useful life neither airline made any money flying the aircraft. Up to 50% of the passengers were traveling on mileage awards. If you want to name the best airliner of the 20th century, you should consider the DC-3. It revolutionized passenger flight, it was also the most important workhorse of the war years. The Concorde was a wonderful aircraft but did it advance the the future of flight? NO We learned that supersonic flight is too expensive, burns too much fuel and the sonic boom issue kept it from flying over large landlocked countries. We already had incredibly fast supersonic aircraft before the Concorde used as spy planes and fighters.
    The Douglas DC-3 is a fixed-wingpropeller-driven airliner that revolutionized air transport in the 1930s and 1940s. Its lasting effect on the airline industry and World War II makes it one of the most significant transport aircraft ever produced. It has a cruise speed of 207 mph (333 km/h), capacity of 21 to 32 passengers or 6,000 lbs (2,700 kg) of cargo and a range of 1,500 mi (2,400 km).
    The DC-3 is a twin-engine metal monoplane with a tailwheel-type landing gear and was developed as a larger, improved 14-bed sleeper version of the Douglas DC-2. It had many exceptional qualities compared to previous aircraft. It was fast, had good range and could operate from short runways. It was reliable and easy to maintain and carried passengers in greater comfort. Before the war it pioneered many air travel routes. It could cross the continental United States and made worldwide flights possible. It is considered the first airliner that could profitably carry just passengers.
    Civil DC-3 production ended in 1942 at 607 aircraft. Military versions, including the C-47 Skytrain (designated the Dakota in British Royal Air Force (RAF) service), and Russian- and Japanese-built versions, brought total production to over 16,000. Following the war, the airliner market was flooded with surplus C-47s and other ex-military transport aircraft, and Douglas' attempts to produce an upgraded DC-3 failed due to cost.

    I fly several times a year and have flown at least once a year since I've been about 5 and sadly have ever had the pleasure of flying on one 777. United from SFO to ord. Both of my 747 flights were also United. Plenty of 767 and down on a variety of airlines. Still remember the 727 and 737 originals we're I was in elementary. 727 was awesome. For Airbus I've only been on the A318, 319, and 320. Want to get the A321 and A350 and obviously 787 777x and eventual 797. Probably take my first E175 flight on Alaska in a few months on the FAT to SAN route

      a plane this large didn't benefit by being composite. aluminum is not exactly heavy

    Regarding those 777x folding wingtips, they don't look very long until one realizes each on is actually 11 feet long, so not insubstantial. And I believe the engine nacelle diameter is larger than the fuselage of a 737. There certainly is some cool items with the 777.
    An interesting thought is with extend ranges of smaller airplanes like the 787 and even maybe future upgrades of a variety of airplanes with newer more fuel efficient engines, does that crowd in on the sales of larger airplanes? I think it does due to the ease and flexibility of filling and routing smaller airplanes.
