The 777 "Working Together" airplane flew for the second time Wednesday. With Boeing Capts. John Cashman and Ken Higgins at the controls, the airplane took off from Paine Field at about 8:45 a.m., went through a majority of flight testing along the western coast of Washington state, and landed more than seven hours later, at 3:50 p.m. The second flight was the first of five "flight-control clearance" tests aimed at assuring the air worthiness of the flight-control system and to assess the airplanes's handling qualities. The aircraft eventually will move from Paine Field to the Boeing Field flight test center, where the flight-test program will continue. After the five flight-control clearance tests are complete, the 777 will fly to Glasgow, Mont., for a series of "flutter tests," which essentially test how the airplane structure responds to high speeds. The test are expected to last until mid-July. -- ________Greg Wright________ Software Development | firstname.lastname@example.org | 777 Division. | email@example.com | |___uunet!bcstec!gregory____| NOT A BOEING SPOKESPERSON.
