Boeing's 777X jetliner successfully completes maiden flight

SEATTLE (Reuters) - Boeing Co successfully staged the first flight of the world’s largest twin-engined jetliner on Saturday in a respite from the crisis over its smallest model, the grounded 737 MAX.

The 777X, a larger version of the 777 mini-jumbo, touched down at the historic Boeing Field outside Seattle at 2 pm (2200 GMT) after a debut which began almost four hours earlier at Boeing’s revamped wide-body assembly lines north of the city.

The decision to take advantage of a gap in clouds to start the months of testing needed before the jet can carry passengers came after two attempts had to be postponed due to high winds.

“It’s a proud day for us,” said the chief executive of Boeing’s commercial airplane unit, Stan Deal.

Second 777X test aircraft makes maiden flight

Boeing’s second 777-9 flight-test aircraft took to the skies for the first time on 30 April, departing Paine Field in Everett, Washington and landing nearly 3h later at Boeing Field in Seattle.
The flight of test aircraft “WH002” shows that Boeing’s 777X work continues amid the coronavirus pandemic. The flight follows the 25 January first flight of the first test aircraft, dubbed WH001.

Boeing will use the second flight-test 777-9 to evaluate “handling characteristics and other aspects of airplane performance”. The first flight of WH002 lasted 2h 58min, with the aircraft landing at 14:02 local time.
