Often referred to as the 'Triple Seven', it was the world’s first commercial aircraft entirely designed by computer.
Its visible features include super large engines, low hanging landing gear and a blade shaped tail cone with a relatively narrow tailfin.
British Airways took part in the design of the aircraft with Boeing. The Boeing 777 emerged as a best seller for longhaul commercial aircraft thanks to its excellent fuel efficiency and cabin comfort.
