B777 Freighter rolls out into daylight

PROGRESS continues on the first Boeing 777 Freighter, as the company’s newest cargo airplane was towed out of its factory in Everett, Washington and onto the flight line Tuesday night. Work will continue on the 777 Freighter to prepare for flight tests this summer and to paint the aircraft in the Boeing livery.

The 777 Freighter will fly farther and provide more capacity than any other twin-engine cargo plane. Boeing will deliver the first 777 Freighter to its launch customer Air France in the fourth quarter of 208. The 777 Freighter is based on the 777-200LR Worldliner passenger airplane and is built using the same production line as all other models of the 777. Eleven customers around the world have ordered 78 777 Freighters.
