Giant Plane

A little distraction from the usual Hoboken nonsense.

Resident “The Eagle” and a few of his cronies managed to take these exclusive pics at JFK this week, when they should have been working. That is one massive plane, yikes!

Read article on CNN. Old news, yeah I know.

The 777 is 9% more efficient and the 787, to be released next year, is almost 20% more efficient. Airbus poked fun at Boeing for years for making a more efficient and faster plan instead of a monster like this one. Now Boeing is kicking Airbus’ ass, as Airbus has lost over $6 billion on this double-decker death trap, which happens to give off 19% more emmissions than a 747.

I just noticed the wing design. Does anyone how it compares in fuel consumption with the 777?

the photographer got very close and was blessed with a beautiful day. the snow on the ground is a nice touch. kudos, nice work.

I have to agree with the fuel consumption part. I notice this beast has 4 engines. If it’s not any faster than the current 2-engine jumbo jets then it’s just about cramming people in. This plane holds over 400 passengers. If you hate waiting in line at the airport now, just wait.
