The 777-200LR became the world's longest-range commercial airliner when it entered service in 2006. It has a maximum range of 9,395 nm17,399,540 m
17,399.54 km
57,085,105.029 ft
and was intended for ultra-long-haul routes such as New York to Singapore, or Chicago to Sydney - up to about 19 hours flying time. The -200LR features an increased MTOW and the same wing as the 777-300ER. The 777F is a cargo version of this variant. Three optional auxiliary fuel tanks take the baseline fuel tank capacity from 181,289 l to 203,570 l. Other new features include raked wingtips, redesigned main landing gear, and additional structural strengthening. As with the -300ER, the -200LR is equipped with wingtip extensions of 3.90 m. B77L is member of the B777 family of aircraft.

Accidents & Serious Incidents involving B77L

  • B77L, Copenhagen Denmark, 2011 (On 17 April 2011, a Boeing 777F bounced three times during an attempted landing at Copenhagen during which the underside of the aircraft was damaged by two tailstrikes. The second occurred during over-rotation for a go around commenced after thrust reverser deployment, with 760 metres of the 3300 metre-long runway remaining. The Investigation observed that a go around initiated after thrust reverser deployment was contrary to an express prohibition in the aircraft type FCOM. It was noted that the aircraft commander was an instructor pilot and that both pilots had less than 200 hours experience on the aircraft type.)
  • B77L, Paris CDG France, 2015 (On 22 May 2015, a Boeing 777F augmented crew daylight takeoff from Paris CDG was attempted with a thrust setting for an aircraft weight 100 tonnes less than the actual weight after an undetected crew error. Only activation of the tailstrike protection system prevented fuselage contact with the runway and this was eventually followed by the application of full thrust. The end of the runway was crossed at 172 feet agl and the flight completed. The Investigation concluded that the risk of this type of event had been widely recognised for a long time but had not been adequately addressed.)
