Boeing
: 13 November, 2006  (New Product)
LUANDA, Angola, Nov. 13, 2006 -- Boeing Commercial Airplane's Vice President of Airplane Production Carolyn Corvi led a 38-member company delegation on a 16-hour and 47-minute record-setting 777 delivery flight of 8,060 nautical miles (12,896 kilometers) from Seattle-Tacoma International Airport in Seattle that arrived Saturday, Nov. 11, in Luanda, Angola.
TAAG Angola Airlines took delivery of two 777-200ERs and three 737-700s; one of each airplane type is pictured here after arriving in Luanda. The lead Boeing 777 will share the record with TAAG's second 777-200ER that matched the speed over distance record and arrived in Luanda an hour later. Two of the three 737-700s departed Seattle on Nov. 9, while the 777s and the third 737 departed the next day. All five airplanes arrived in Luanda between 11 a.m. and noon on Nov. 11.
