> How can one distinguish a Boeing 777 from the many other twin engine >airliners, seeing it in flight without any direct size comparison? All those twins do look alike; my dad (retired PA/DL capt) used to complain that it was hard to tell if the holding traffic was a B767 or A300 a long ways off or a B737 a short ways off. When I was in Seattle back in 1994-5, we used to see the B777 going in and out of Boeing Field all the time. The feature I noticed most was the dihedral of the wings- the tips seemed to be higher than the top of the fuselage.
