Boeing stretches 777X wings to 235.5 feet, to gain efficiency

Submitted
Slightly longer wings and less-distinctive engines will be two new features of Boeing’s evolving 777X, according to a story this week in Aviation Week and Space Technology. The wing span has grown to 235.5 feet, by adding one foot to the outboard end of the folding wing tips. The tips will now be 12 feet long, up from the prior 11, which means that when folded up the plane will still be able to fit in the 213-foot “Code E” gates now used by the current 777 300ER models.
