Boeing has conducted a productive and successful first flight of the second 777X airplane. The aircraft flew for 2 hours and 58 minutes over Washington state before landing at Seattle’s Boeing Field.

Designated WH002, this airplane is the second of four in a dedicated flight-test fleet and will test handling characteristics and other aspects of airplane performance. An array of equipment, sensors and monitoring devices throughout the cabin allows the onboard team to document and evaluate the airplane’s response to test conditions in real time.
