This is the world’s longest passenger plane at 252ft. Makes its debut at factory ceremony, less than a week after the Ethiopian Airlines crash that killed all 157 passengers on board.
The first fully assembled Boeing 777X, the world’s longest passenger jetliner.
The aircraft had expected to be presented with much fanfare in a ceremonial debut at the plane manufacturer’s plant in Everett, near Seattle, on Wednesday.
But as a mark of respect for those who died in the Ethiopian Airlines 737 Max 8 crash, it was instead unveiled in a low-key event that was only attended by Boeing employees.
