Typo in "talplanes"[edit]

In the last sentence of the second paragraph:

The 777 became the first Boeing airliner to use fly-by-wire controls and to apply a composite structure in the talplanes.

Should this be "tailplanes"? Searching for the literal on google points back to this article. ChaoShuCai (talk) 04:47, 10 September 2023 (UTC)[reply]

Quite right, thanks for mentioning it.  Fixed. - Ahunt (talk) 13:16, 10 September 2023 (UTC)[reply]

Ambiguous info on infobox[edit]

The image caption on infobox says - “The first Boeing 777 built, operated by Cathay Pacific in 2011…”. However, it lists shortly after that the introduction of the aircraft was with United Airlines in 1995. The two info sounds ambiguous to me. Can someone please explain it? Thanks!

Not ambiguous. Airliners often get sold by their original owners at some point as they age. Here's a summary for 777 #1: B-HNL on planespotters.net. -Fnlayson (talk) 16:33, 6 February 2024 (UTC)[reply]

UA 35 wheel loss[edit]

Is there any value in briefly describing the UA35 incident out of SFO where the plane lost a wheel on take-off? It was filmed by a streamer and is still getting a fair bit of media play are part of larger stories on issues with Boeing and United Airlines aircraft. I'm happy to write it up, but wanted to check with the regulars to see what the standard for such inclusions is before I do. Drmargi (talk) 00:29, 25 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Is this wheel loss event truly notable/significant overall? Unless it really affected the subsequent landing, it probably a non-notable event per WP:NOTNEWS, etc. -Fnlayson (talk) 02:12, 25 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]
I lean towards no. It was a wild video, but in the grand scheme of things, it was thankfully a rather minor incident. -- RickyCourtney (talk) 13:42, 25 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Semi-protected edit request on 18 April 2024 - Change Triple Seven to 777 (or vice versa) in some places[edit]

change certain mentions of "Triple Seven" to "777" ex: change "The Triple Seven initially competed with the Airbus A340 and McDonnell Douglas MD-11" to "The 777 initially competed with the Airbus A340 and McDonnell Douglas MD-11" Both 777 and Triple Seven are used in the paragraph mentioned in my example, I feel like it would be better to change all mentions to 777 or Triple Seven for consistency reasons. Jwang1234 (talk) 06:26, 18 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Using varied wording can be a good thing to make the wording less repetitive. However I think 777 should be the main choice and I changed one Triple Seven use in the Lead to 777 just now. Regards -Fnlayson (talk) 15:23, 19 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
