Boeing 777X takes flight for the first time
The Boeing 777X is the newest Boeing aircraft to take flight. It flew on February 1, 2020, lifting off from Paine Field in Everett, Washington. The 777X is the largest twin-engine jet in the world and Boeing's latest aircraft to fly since the grounding of the 737 Max. The aircraft is the first next-generation variant of Boeing's popular 777 product line, which first flew in the 1990s and still sees service with the world's leading airlines. The aircraft builds off the 777, offering higher capacity and efficiency thanks to its newer engines.
