Abstract

When rolled out for its first customer in 1995, the 777 will be the first new Boeing commercial airplane in more than ten years. Since the introduction of the last two Boeing planes, the 767 and 757, the science and technology of titanium alloys has come a long way. Some of the advances have led to new applications of titanium\3-with its accompanying performance benefits\3-on the 777.
