More Range, More Payload -- Newest Boeing 777 Unveiled

Boeing's newest jetliner, the 777-300ER (extended range) is displayed for the first time Nov. 14 at Boeing's final assembly plant in Everett, Wash. A striking new red, white and blue paint scheme incorporates for the first time elements of the Boeing livery on the underbelly of an airplane. The 777-300ER is based on the popular 777-300 airplane. In addition to extending the 777-300's range by 1,300 nautical miles (2,407 kilometers) to 7,250 nautical miles (13,427 kilometers), the 777-300ER is able to carry an additional 43,500 pounds (19,700 kilograms) of cargo. The 777-300ER is powered by the world's most powerful commercial jet engine, the GE90-115B. GE Aircraft Engines is the sole producer of engines for the both of Boeing's longer-range 777s, the 777-200LR (longer-range) and 777-300ER.
