The Boeing 777 is a very popular modern wide-body airliner with over 1000 currently in service. The 777-300ER is the longer of the two 777 versions and its very long range had made it popular with international airlines.
The Boeing 777 was designed to fill the gap in passenger capacity between Boeing 747 and 767 airliners.
It was designed in conjunction with eight major airlines and was the first airliner to be designed entirely on computers, allowing virtual assembly so that mockups and prototypes were unnecessary.
The first 777 made its first flight on 12 June 1994 and they began entering service in May 1995.
The first stretched 777-300ER was delivered for airline service in April 2004 and it has become the most popular version of this airliner.
This model represents VH-VPH flying with Virgin Australia in April 2013.
