PIA Takes 2nd Boeing 777-200LR

Pakistan International Airlines officially took delivery of its second Boeing 777-200LR (Longer Range) yesterday during a hangar ceremony held at Boeing Field.

The airline's newest 777-200LR is the same airplane that broke the distance record for a commercial jetliner in November 2005, having flown 11,664 nautical miles (21,601 kilometers) during a 22-hour, 42-minute eastbound flight from Hong Kong to London Heathrow.

The airplane is pictured here departing Paine Field in Everett, Wash., home to Boeing's twin-aisle manufacturing facilities.
