The 777-200 (772A) was the initial A-market model. The first customer delivery was to United Airlines (FAA: N777UA) in May 1995. It is available with a maximum take-off weight (MTOW) from 505,000 to 545,000 pounds (229 to 247 tones) and range capability between 3,780 and 5,235 nautical miles (7,000 to 9,695 km).
The 777 was the first commercial aircraft to be designed 100% by computer. No paper drawings were ever produced; everything was created on a 3D CAD software system known as CATIA. This allowed a virtual 777 to be assembled in cyberspace, allowing engineers to examine for interferences, and to test if the many thousands of parts would fit together properly before costly physical prototypes were manufactured.
The Boeing 777 currently is available in six models: 777-200, 777-200ER (extended range), 777 200LR (longer-range), 777-300 and the 777-300ER, and the 777 Freighter. This premium handcrafted airliner model is constructed from high quality molded resin and comes with a mahogany base for special display. Please Click On Image For A Closer Look!
