    That plane is going to crash and kill everyone onboard. I'm calling it now.

    Love all the smartasses and the haters. Here's an idea... how about commenting positively on the subject of an amazing, beautiful piece of machinery able to carry us anywhere we wish to go in the world in a reasonable amount of time. It's amazing that we have evolved from throwing rocks at each other to have the ability to develop something as incredible as the 777X. Oh, but wait... we STILL throw rocks at each other. It's called "social media." Society's number one problem, not the airplane in this video. Stay positive and show some love, my fellow humans! 👍

    What is the point of moving the wing-tips up?

    I half expected the plane to pitch up too steeply then crash into the ground nose first.

    I believe that the Boeing 777-9 is the largest and heaviest twin engine aircraft ever produced and has ever flown. There are even larger planes, but they have at least four engines.

  31. Paul L

    Paul Lپیش 25 روز

    Oh, come on! What a waste! The Dreamliner is a bad design because the rigid wingtips and long, slender wings cause (in certain conditions) extreme shimmy and adverse yaw. I'm saying this from experience and avoid flying on them; the designs of the past are solid and reliable, giving tens of thousands of flight hours for each aircraft without a single fatal incident. Boeing ought to give up while it's ahead and dump these idiotic designers and managers who think they can increase prices $50 per flight per person by adding "folding X" unnecessary crap.

  32. Appable

    Appableپیش 23 روز

    The actual point of the folding wingtips is to decrease operating costs but okay. Also, modern aircraft with high aspect ratio wings have far, far better safety records than older planes. It's getting difficult to figure out how reliable they are because planes like A320neo just don't crash.

    4 motors is safer right?

  42. Appable

    Appableپیش 26 روز

    J R not obviously, dual engine failure is very rare except in instances where that same failure would take out all engines on a four engine plane. Meanwhile more chance of uncontained engine failure leading to major damage to systems in the wing

    Foldable wings to direct our attention away from MCAS?

  56. Appable

    Appableپیش 26 روز

    No, to fit in the gates. There is no MCAS and the concept of MCAS doesn't make sense for modern planes like 777

    We need to put something out there and try to salvage our reputation, I know, folding wings, just the tip though.

  58. hector bossio

    hector bossioپیش 27 روز

    This aircraft has the same problem as the 737 MAX, the engines are too high, which will create it to stall. Boeing has compromise safety, and people's lives are on the line.

  59. Appable

    Appableپیش 25 روز

    Mar Taylor Did I say 737 MAX was safe? It’s not unstable but it also has a major design issue with MCAS implementation.

  60. Appable

    Appableپیش 27 روز

    hector bossio Completely false. “Engines too high” is not an engineering analysis, 777 has relaxed stability with robust pitch control law anyway so handling issues can be solved easily, and 737 MAX was not unstable nor did it have any problem in a normal flight envelope
