The Boeing 777 is a long range twin engined airliner and is the worlds largest twin jet aircraft. The aircraft is often called the 'triple Seven'.
The 777 is distinctive in its six wheel main undercarriage configuration and its large diameter engines. The 777 was designed to plug the gap between the largest 767 and smallest 747, however it has been so successful that it has replaced many especially older 747s on many routes.
In the early 1970's the long range over water routes were dominated by the four engined 747 and the DC-10 & Lockheed Tristar trijets but with further experience the range of twin engined aircraft increased and the development of overwater flights became acceptable due to the reliability of modern engines and systems. Twin engined aircraft are cheaper to operate than three or four engined aircraft.
In the late 1980's airlines and manufacturers were looking at replacing the older designs and it was now acceptable to operate twin engined aircraft over water Boeing concentrated on the design of a large twin engined aircraft.
The 777 was launched in October 1990 when United Airlines became the launch customer with ETOPS approval being an approval. The initial fuselage diameter was increased at the request of Cathay Pacific, also notable was that the 777 was the first aircraft to be designed in 3 dimensional computer software as well as being Boeing’s first Fly-by-wire airliner.
The initial -200 was offered with engines from General Electric, Pratt & Whitney and Rolls Royce.
The first aircraft flew on 12th June 1994 and the development program was straight forward with entry into service on 7th June 1995 with United Airlines on the LHR to Dulles and ETOPS 180 minute was available at certification. ETOPS 207 minutes was approved in October 1996.
The initial -200 is capable of carrying 440 passengers, although the normal passenger capacity is 305 in 3 class layout. The 300ER extended range version normally carries 301 passengers in 3 class layout. The ER has additional fuel capacity and increased maximum take-off weight. The LR stands for Longer Range again with further increased fuel and maximum takeoff weight.
The -300 is the stretched version and was launched on 26th June 1995 and was designed to be stretched by 20% with 60 more seats. The ER version has increased fuel capacity and maximum take off weight.
The 777F is based on the -200LR and is seen as a replacement for older 747 cargo aircraft. Also in the 2000's Boeing started converting older 777-200 and ER aircraft into freighters, calling these the 777 BCF (Boeing Converted Freighters).
The 777X was launched in November 2013 and will feature new GE9X engines, new carbon fibre wings and folding wingtips. There will be two models, the -8 to replace the -200 and -9 to replace the -300.

Cockpit Revolution has been developing cockpit posters for the last 5 years and are drawn by a Flight Engineer using his expertise in aircraft engineering and training.
All the posters are based upon the manufacturers documentation, visits to the aircraft and simulators and photographs.
The posters are drawn to no specific configuration, phase of flight or switch position. If you require a specific configuration, phase of flight or switch position then please contact us.
