A New Visitor

For my whole career, I've worked on nothing but out of production (older) aircraft. In some ways, I've felt that technology left me behind. Yesterday, I found out...... it did.

Even though the 777 has been out for 20 years (The 777 first entered commercial service with United Airlines on June 7, 1995), it's brand new to me.

I sat in the cockpit and was in awe and very much belittled, then I went down to the E&E......

I have 10 years left (maybe), it would be nice to be able to learn just 5% about what makes this aircraft tic. After my first look...... 5% might be stretching it.
