Behind the scenes: How Boeing built our latest 777F airplane
Each Boeing 777F airplane is made of more than 3 million individual parts.
And our newest 777F is a unique one. It’s part of the ecoDemonstrator program, and will be used for a series of tests to improve environmental performance and safety of future airplanes.
A large range of technologies will be tested, including compact thrust reversers, flight deck innovations, and fuel efficiency.
