Korean Airlines Boeing 777 Photo

The Boeing 777 is the first airplane to be completely designed by computers. So its shape is aerodynamically sound and pleasing to the sight. Yes, beauty is in the eyes of the beholders! Some asked, why aren’t there any winglets fitted on the wings? Well, they don’t need them. It looks great and still fly very economically.There are many good photos of the Boeing 777 taken by various plane spotters from around the world. They are mostly copyrighted. If you wish to use their images, kindly email them for permission.
