Flown the 747-400, 777, 767/757, 727, and 737. By far, the 777 was the one I enjoyed the most.

Jetliner Loses Engine, Lands Safely in NYC

NEW YORK

A jetliner carrying more than 250 people lost power in one of its two engines Wednesday but landed safely at a nearby airport, officials said.

The Boeing 777 plane landed at John F. Kennedy International Airport less than a half hour after the engine failed, said American Airlines spokesman Billy Sanez. Officials were investigating what caused the problem on Flight 134.

"The plane landed after the captain declared an emergency," Sanez said. "It's not a common incident, but the pilots are trained to deal with these situations."

The plane was en route to London from Los Angeles. Sanez said all the passengers would be put on another plane.

I understand the B777 is a nice aircraft. But, for us pilots it make us useless. The B777 is technologically advanced. I think the B737-200 and the B727 are the real pilot airplane

Almost all of the navigation automation can be turned off, stepping you back into the realm of the 737-200 and the 727. Almost, but not quite there.

Used to work on the ramp at an airport with some of the most 747's in the United States (SFO). We had DC-10's, A340's... But nothing ever commanded such awe from onlookers as a Boeing 777.
