Boeing Celebrates the Debut of the New 777 Freighter
EVERETT, Wash., May 21, 2008 -- The Boeing Company [NYSE: BA] today debuted the new 777 Freighter. Employees, suppliers, airline customers and community officials celebrated the world's most capable twin-engine cargo airplane during two debut events.

"We are excited to debut the newest member of our 777 and freighter families," said Larry Loftis, vice president, 777 program. "Today is a tribute to the dedication and hard work our employees, customers and suppliers put into making this airplane a reality. The 777 Freighter's unmatched range, efficiency and capacity as a twin-engine cargo airplane will build on the Boeing leadership in the cargo market."

With a maximum takeoff weight of 766,000 pounds (347,450 kilograms), the 777 Freighter will have a revenue payload capability of 226,000 pounds (103 metric tons).

The 777 Freighter will be capable of flying 4,885 nautical miles (9,045 km) with a full payload and general cargo market densities, making it the world's longest-range twin-engine freighter. The airplane's range capability will translate into significant savings for cargo operators: fewer stops and associated landing fees, less congestion at transfer hubs, lower cargo-handling costs and shorter cargo-delivery times.
