   What would reasonably be the highest gross weight of any future version
of the Boeing 777 airliner? The 767 has been around much longer, and
looking in the latest edition of "Jane's All the World's Aircraft" in
our library, it seems like the heaviest 767 and 777 aircraft have about
the same wing loading, but perhaps both still have growth potential.
   Would projected increases in engine power suggest that there will
eventually be twin engine planes significantly larger than the 777?
