First 777-9 leaves the building


#1

This is the first of two “static planes” which is a basic build up of a plane containing all integral (and changed) parts. Obviously missing quite a bit… it was designed that way. These planes will never fly or never be filled with fluid, etc.

I would’ve seen it leave if I was at work.


#2

The wonders of paper mache


#3

Aluminum, steel, and titanium but who cares :man_shrugging:


#4

What will be the max gross takeoff weight of the real one?


#5

No idea. Couldn’t tell ya.

I doubt Boeing even knows. Speculated, sure.

That being said, planes can vary in instances of thousands of pounds. More sealant here, little rework there, etc etc.


#6

Boeing would be history if the cia did not steal all the airbus stuff and give it to them


#7

No one cares about your conspiracy theories man :slight_smile:
(They actually got modern wing info from the Nazis)


#8

It really happened - not conspiracy - try to keep up
