COMMERCIAL BOEING 777X
At 105ft (32m) long the Boeing 777X’s spars are the largest singlepiece carbon fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP) composite parts ever developed for an airliner. Along with the wing’s panels, the spars are produced at the new Composite Wing Centre (CWC) that Boeing has built specifically for the 777X at the Everett home of the Triple Seven.
