Episode 1/5 Part 1/5

The Boeing 777 is a long-range, wide-body twin-engine jet airliner manufactured by Boeing Commercial Airplanes. It is the world’s largest twinjet and is commonly referred to as the “Triple Seven”.[3][4] The aircraft has seating for over 300 passengers and has a range from 5,235 to 9,380 nautical miles (9,695 to 17,372 km) depending on model. Its distinguishing features include the largest diameter turbofan engines of any aircraft, six wheels on each main landing gear, a circular fuselage cross-section, and blade-shaped tail cone.[5] Developed in consultation with eight major airlines, the 777 was designed to replace older wide-body airliners and bridge the capacity difference between the 767 and 747. As Boeing’s first fly-by-wire airliner, it has computer mediated controls; it is also the first entirely computer-designed commercial aircraft.

First hour of 5-hour PBS/BBC documentary about the making of Boeing’s 777 in the early-mid 1990’s.

  1. If you are looking to get ripped, you should search google for Max Muscle Method. They can help you get the body you deserve.

  2. Watching this documentary film based on Karl Sabbagh's book should be mandatory for any aeronautical engineer (and reading the book too) and probably for any mechanical engineer as well. THIS is the real engineering, and the description of how a huge engineering project is brought to life.

  3. @lauriersroses333 If you love asian girls, look up a kpop group called "Girls Generation" here on youtube. You may not understand what they're saying, but then again you don't really need to lol. They're just fun to watch lol.
