===Boeing 777-200===
The '''Boeing 777-200''' ('''772A''') was the initial A-market model of the [[Boeing 777]]. The first customer delivery was to United Airlines in May 1995. It is available with a maximum take-off weight (MTOW) from 505,000 to 545,000 pounds (229 to 247 tonnes) and range capability between 3,780 and 5,235 nautical miles (7,000 to 9,695 km).

The '''Boeing 777-200LR''' ("LR" for Longer Range), a variant of the [[Boeing 777]], became the world's longest-range commercial [[airliner]] when it entered service in 2006. Boeing named this aircraft the ''Worldliner'', highlighting its ability to connect almost any two airports in the world. It holds the world record for the longest nonstop flight by a commercial airliner, and has a maximum range of 9,380 nautical miles (17,370 km). The 777.200LR was intended for ultra-long-haul routes such as Los Angeles to Singapore.<ref>[ Boeing 777] (Wikipedia)</ref>
===Boeing 777-F===
The 777 Freighter (777F) is an all-cargo version of the twinjet, and shares features with the -200LR; these include its airframe, engines, and fuel capacity. With a maximum payload of 226,000 lb (103,000 kg), cargo capacity is similar to the 243,000 lb (110,000 kg) of the 747-200F. The freighter has a range of 4,900 nmi (9,070 km) at maximum payload, although greater range is possible if less cargo weight is carried. As the aircraft promises improved operating economics compared to existing freighters, airlines have targeted the 777F as a replacement for older freighters including the [[747-200]]F and [[MD-11]]F.
The 777 for Flightgear is based on [[777-200]] developed by Justin Smithies, Syd Adams.
