Wind forces Boeing to again delay first flight of 777X

Wind forces Boeing to again delay first flight of 777X

High wind forced Boeing to again delay the inaugural flight of its long-haul 777X aircraft on Friday. “We’ll try again tomorrow,” Boeing said on Twitter, aiming for a 10:00 am (1800 GMT) flight from the airfield in Everett, Washington near the company’s headquarters. The new aircraft in its blue and white company colors, remained on the tarmac of Boeing Field, in the suburbs of Seattle where the wind was blowing hard enough to shake the camera in place to document the flight live on social media.
