Behind the Scenes: How Boeing Built Our Latest 777F Airplane

November 1, 2017

Each Boeing 777F airplane is made of more than 3 million individual parts.

And our newest 777F is a unique one. It’s part of the ecoDemonstrator program, and will be used for a series of tests to improve environmental performance and safety of future airplanes.

A large range of technologies will be tested, including compact thrust reversers, flight deck innovations, and fuel efficiency.

Check out the video below for a behind the scenes peek inside the Boeing factory with the building of this plane!

    777F looks like a really big deal especially when many of the MD 10 aircraft are retiring, including N306FE, which has the name “John” on it.
