Airways Magazine: Boeing 777 Surpasses The 2,000 Order Milestone

The Boeing 777 Surpasses The 2,000 Order Milestone, by Airways Magazine (LINK). By the end of 2018, Boeing had taken orders for 2,013 777s.

These include all 777 versions. The first 777X test article finished construction November 2018 and should fly soon.

The Boeing 777X engine, the General Electric GE9X, has a greater diameter than the 707 fuselage tube dimension (used for the 707 / 720, 727, 737, 757 series).

Good for Boeing!

I remember that Boeing made the news way back in the day because they'd made a radical decision to design the 777 entirely by computer (woooo).

...and now I feel old.

I was going to say it doesn't seem long since the 1,000th delivery, but looking it up it's almost 7 years already.

Looks like they're 500 orders behind right now (wow). Only delivered around 1,500 as of the end of 2018.

That is mind blowing, considering that total production of the 747 was about 1,500 aircraft

Given how many I see, I am surprised it is that few.

One of the best aspects has been their safety record
