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.[1]

The 777 autopilot can be fully controlled using the 3D cockpit switches. For FG 2.6.0 use left and middle mouse buttons to turn any switches left/right.

Liveries

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.
