First Boeing 777 Freighter emerges

Boeing 777F leaves the factory for the first time

Progress continues on the first Boeing 777 Freighter as the company’s newest cargo aeroplane was towed out of its factory in Everett, Wash. and onto the flight line on Tuesday night. Work will continue on the 777 Freighter to prepare for flight test this northern summer and to paint it in the Boeing livery.

The 777 Freighter is claimed to fly further and provide more capacity than any other twin-engine cargo aircraft. Boeing will deliver the first 777 Freighter to its launch customer Air France in the fourth quarter of 2008. The 777 Freighter is based on the 777-200LR Worldliner passenger aircraft and is built using the same production line as all other models of the 777. Eleven customers around the world have ordered 78 of the 777 Freighters.
