Boeing's newest widebody jet, the 777X, created buzz among aviation enthusiasts this week as it conducted a fresh round of taxi tests at the Everett factory.
The jet, which features retractable wingtips, is longer and higher than the jet maker's own iconic 747 double decker, putting on a show for Paine Field jet spotters who share photographs on social media when Boeing puts its aircraft to work.
The 777X test aircraft underwent a series of ground tests, including several rounds of low speed passes down the runway as teams of Boeing workers verified the operation of integrated airplane systems and software.
