Israel Aircraft Industries (IAI) and GECAS have jouned forces to create a freighter conversion programme for the Boeing 777-300ER.
This version of the biggest twin aircraft ever will have a side cargo door in the left side of the rear fuselage. Both the length and the location of the cargo door should enable an easy recognition. The aircraft is designated 777-300ERSF, in which SF means special freighter, but the companies have dubbed it "Big Twin". GECAS itself launched the project with orders for fifteen conversions. The first aircraft in planned to fly in 2022. (photo copyright GECAS)
