The 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 −200LR was intended for ultra-long-haul routes such as Los Angeles to Singapore.
Developed alongside the −300ER, the −200LR features an increased MTOW and three optional auxiliary fuel tanks in the rear cargo hold. Other new features include raked wingtips, redesigned main landing gear, and additional structural strengthening. As with the −300ER and 777F, the −200LR is equipped with wingtip extensions of 12.8 ft (3.90 m). The -200LR is powered by GE90-110B1 or GE90-115B turbofans. The first −200LR was delivered to Pakistan International Airlines on February 26, 2006.As of July 2011, nine different −200LR customers have taken delivery of 52 aircraft, with 3 unfilled orders. Airlines operated 48 of the -200LR variant as of July 2011. The closest competing aircraft from Airbus is the A340-500HGW.

2) Turn on APU knob.
3) Turn on the rest of the electrical system.
4) Turn on the Hydraulics (all four).

6) After a minute, turn on the two engines.
When the engines are ready:
7) Turn off APU knob (press mouse central wheel).
8) Turn off battery
9) Both engines back to normal position.
The usual liveries of the 777-200 seem to fit well to the 777-200LR. The model is almost identical, with the only important difference of the raked wingtips.
