According to Friday's (2/17) Hartford Courant, Pratt & Whitney became the first engine manufacturer to have committed to build an engine for the long-range version of the B777 (B-plus, I believe). The engine, the PW4098, is scheduled to be certified in September 1997. In an earlier Hartford Courant article, it was reported that P&W had been discussing with an Asian carrier (my guess is Korean Air) and a South African carrier (everyone can guess this one, right?) about the long-range B777 powerplant. With the 98,000-lb-thrust PW4098, the B777 will have a range of 8,000 miles. By my simple estimation, the long-range B777 can enter into service by late 1998. -- ======================================== | H Andrew Chuang email@example.com | ========================================
