Will Be Unveiled To Employees May 21
Adorned in its Boeing livery, the first new, factory-built 777
Freighter was moved from the planemaker's Everett, WA paint
facility to Everett field this morning, bringing the airplane one
step closer to its world debut.
Boeing will debut the 777 Freighter at employee celebration
events May 21, in the Everett factory where the airplane is built
on the same production lines as all other 777 models.
Launched in May 2005 with a five-plane order from Air France,
the 777 Freighter is based on the 777-200LR Worldliner passenger
airplane. Boeing expects the plane will be capable of flying 4,965
nautical miles with a full payload and market-preferred cargo load
density, making it the world's longest-range freighter.
The new airplane will feature a maximum takeoff weight of
766,000 pounds, offering a revenue payload capability of 229,000
pounds. The 777 Freighter will be powered exclusively by the
General Electric GE90-110B1L.
Boeing expects to deliver the first 777 Freighter to Air France
in the fourth quarter of 2008. Eleven customers around the world
have ordered 78 777 Freighters.
