      The 777x engine made it's maiden flight a few days ago on the GE-owned 747 testbed. Check out that size! It makes the 747 engine look tiny. Simply amazing how big engines are these days.

      Absolutely MASSIVE. Much larger and maybe there really could be a 747 twin!!

      P.S. how about that DL L-1011 in the background in the second picture??

      Yeah, that's one mother of a fan on that thing! Yowza. Can't wait to fly on a 777X! Heck, I need to get on a 787 first!

      It looks like the Engine and Plane had a different scale!

      Thanks for the video!

      Yeah, one engine is 1/144 scale while the rest is 1/200.
