From the looks of it (to me), it seemed like it was a Bombardier CRJ. The problem from that angle is that I cannot see the registration for the regional aircraft...

Confirmed, though, that through visual inspection that it was indeed an Embraer ERJ-145. I'll correct it quickly.

EVA Air continues to sign new lease deals for new 777-300ERs. Yesterday they signed a deal with BOC aviation for 2 to be delivered in 2017. EVA signed deals 8 777s this year so far. These come on top of their 18 direct orders with Boeing (2 more to be delivered) and 2 that were earlier leased from Gecas. This should mean that EVA will have a fleet of 28 777-300ERs by 2017.

Gecas: 4x - July 2014 (http://www.afm.aero/news/item/1763-e...rcraft-from-ge)
ALC: 2x - 8 October 2014 (http://airleasecorp.com/2014/10/07/a...-with-eva-air/)
BOC Aviation: 2x - 21 October (http://www.bocaviation.com/en/press-...ys-corporation)


EVA has also announced this year that the 777F is the most likely candidate to replace their cargo fleet of MD-11s and 744s.

Boeing Celebrates Groundbreaking for 777X Composite Wing Center

EVERETT, Wash., Oct. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Boeing (NYSE: BA) today celebrated the groundbreaking of its new 777X Composite Wing Center at the Everett, Wash., campus. Permitting for the new 1-million-square-foot facility was completed approximately seven weeks earlier than anticipated, allowing for an accelerated start to construction.

Boeing is investing more than $1 billion in the Everett site for construction and outfitting of the new building.

Once completed, the facility located on the north side of the main final assembly building will help usher in composite wing fabrication for the company's newest commercial jetliner and sustain thousands of local jobs for decades to come.

"We're excited with the progress being made on this new facility that will play a crucial role in bringing the 777X to market," said Boeing Commercial Airplanes President and CEO Ray Conner. "We wouldn't be in this position without the support of our teammates and partners throughout the Puget Sound region and in Olympia – we owe them all a debt of gratitude."

Completion of the new building, which is expected in May 2016, will require approximately 3.5 million hours of work. At its peak, there will be approximately 1,200 contract employees working on the project. By the numbers, the new building will require:

31,000 tons (28,000 metric tons) of steel
480 miles (770 kilometers) of electrical cable
80,000 linear feet (24,384 meters ) of process piping
530,000 cubic yards (405,210 cubic meters) of fill material
170,000 tons (154,000 metric tons) of concrete

To date, the 777X has accumulated 300 orders and commitments. Two models will comprise the 777X family – the 777-8X, with approximately 350 seats and a range capability of more than 9,300 nautical miles; and the 777-9X, with approximately 400 seats and a range of more than 8,200 nautical miles. The 777-8X competes directly with the Airbus A350-1000, while the 777-9X is in a class by itself, serving a market segment that no other airplane can. First delivery of the 777X is targeted for 2020.

^Seeing those stats in feet, yards and miles makes me wonder; does Boeing design their aircraft in mm or inches?

The aircraft industry is a horrific combo of metric and imperial.

Aircraft fastener sizes are all in inches, but most manufacturers design in metric.

At one point (around WWII) it did indeed use feet, but I am sure newer software is in meters and cms.

Anyway, I mentioned it because it reminded me of this anecdote. Soviets got a US bomber around WWII (don't remember the designation). Stalin asked it to be reserve-engineered right down to the smallest bolt.

So when the Soviets wanted to make the copy, they couldn't because their machines were in cms, and the plane was made on machines in inches. So the copy ended up being heavier because of the differences between the two. Yay for inches, I guess.

Are any of the US flagship airlines (Delta, United, American) planning on making mass purchases of the 777X? Especially Delta and United when they finally retire their 747-400s? It is abundantly clear they are not going for the next-generation 747-8, so I presume it must be the 777X.

United have A350-1000's on order to replace their 747's. Delta, however, are more likely to pick up the last 777-300ER's as the line transitions to the -8/-9; they are on record as saying they will not be buying "experimental" aircraft.
