The Boeing 777 is the world’s largest twin engine long range airliner. It has a capacity of between 314 and 396 passengers, a flight crew of two and up thirteen flight attendants. The 777 was the first commercial airliner to be designed entirely with computer aided design tools. The first 777 rolled of the assembly line on April 9, 1994 and made its first flight on June 12, 1994. United Airlines was the first airline to put the 777 into use in 1995. As of 2018, a total of 1,988 airplanes had been ordered by airlines around the world, making the 777 the most successful long range twin engine airliner ever and surpassing the number of Boeing 747s built. This is the first 777 built in 1994. It flew with Boeing’s test fleet until 2000 when it was sold to Cathay Pacific Airways. It flew more than 20,000 flights for the airline until it was retired in May 2018. Boeing and Cathay Pacific donated the aircraft to the museum in September 2018.
