Boeing 777X with world's largest jet engine set for first flight

Boeing Co.'s newest plane--the B777X, is set to take off for the first time on Friday (January 24). The plane is scheduled to take off at around 10 am. Earlier, the maiden flight was planned on January 23 but was postponed due to weather conditions in Washington, where a B777-9 model has been assembled in Boeing's Everett factory.

Boeing will also live stream the maiden flight of 777X.

According to Bloomberg reports, the B777 will be Boeing's most expensive aircraft, priced at $442.2 million before discounts. The plane features stunning composite wings, the longest Boeing has ever built, with a span of 235 feet 5 inches (71.75 meters) when fully extended. The 777X will be instantly identifiable by its most distinctive feature: Hinges that flip the sculpted wingtips skyward for easier maneuvering around crowded taxiways.
