    First B777 Freighter rolling out of the paint shop

    WoW! This is such a great looking aircraft. I like all the Boeing aircraft, but the 777 just has a very special place in my heart. It's the first aircraft I wanted to make a home sim of, and seeing this photo just makes my heart pitter-patter!

    Boeing really hit it off right when they adopted this paint scheme as their factory livery.

    Well done to Boeing!

    It looks great. I'm glad that when they designed this aircraft, they kept the profile of the 707 and 727 for the cockpit and nose sections.

    The profiles of 757 and 767 has never looked 'correct' to me.

    Ken, you're reading too far into it all Mate! The 777 was my first desire for sim building, but no longer. In fact, I am not a fanboy of Airbus, but you know, they are still beautiful aircraft. In fact, there are VERY few aircraft that I dont think are beautiful in their own way. However, I am very much in love with my LJ45 and although I would like to have the means (money, space, time, permission from wife, etc.) to build more than one sim, I doubt I will ever get to.
