I don't know if any airlines operate the Boeing 777 out of the twin
cities, but I can give you some information to help you identify or
"spot" it.  Check out my website "Greg's Guide to Spotting Common
Commercial Aircraft" at for
information on spotting common commercial airliners that you are likely
to see in the US.  Unless BA or UA operates a 777 to the twin cities,
it's pretty unlikely that you'd see one there.  Someone please correct
me if I'm wrong regarding this.
