Hi guys, I'm a student doing a Project management coursework and wanted to do it on the development of the 777. Having tried and still trying to use google it is very difficult to decipher the crap from the good stuff. :confused: So do any of you guys have any links to information about the 777 its milestones during its development and if this went along to the schedule or if it missed its deadlines. I also remember a tv documentary series on channel 4 (in the uk) about the development of the 777 but can't seem to get a hold of it anywhere niether. If any of you guys could help me out that would be great. Also i hope this is in the right section of the forum. Thanks for your help in advance. Joe :D

Joemonster, I have a copy of that programme (20th Century Jet) it is excellent and does show the development of the 777 very well. I would be happy to send you the tapes for you to watch (as long as I get them back)

Whoa, paulc, it's the 21st Century Jet! :lol: I think the book is an excellent companion. Anyhow: the book is "21st Century Jet: The Making and Marketing of the Boeing 777" by Karl Sabbagh; the movie is "21st Century Jet: The Building of the Boeing 777." It's also available from www.boeingstore.com If you need development timelines, the Boeing site would be the best place to start. Furthermore, do you have any specific questions about the programme?
