The first GE9X engine has been installed on the 777X


My OpinionI for one am super excited to see the GE9X in action. Having been on a 777, I can say that the GE90 is truly a beast, so I can’t wait to see the GE9X in action.

Other Interesting Facts : ex. The GE9X will have the capability of producing over 100,000 pounds of thrust and probably more. It will be 12% more fuel efficient than it’s predecessor and will provide thrust to all of the variants of the 777X Family.

Boeing has revealed a 3D model of a concept interior layout for the 777X


My Opinion - I think it’s very cool even though I can’t acess it, the videos on the Boeing Instagram really looked very cool.

It’s a filter. I just looked at it and it’s very neat. Uses the 360° AR scene. Very nice. I could only see business class though

Hearing reports that Boeing will no longer be unveiling it on wensday in lite of the 737MAX crash, unknown when they will unveil it now, I’ll post an article once I find it…

If you want to discuss the crash it’s self, do that here:

Someone at Boeing leaked images to DJ’s Aviation. It was definitely the right move to postpone the event but this is a nice first look:

It’s possibly the most beautiful airplane I’ve ever seen…
