Video: Watch American’s new Boeing 777-300ER takeoff on its first flight

Matt Cawby posted a few more photos of American’s new 777-300ER on his KPAE Paine Field blog. He also posted this video of the plane taking off on its first flight.

Looks good! (Hat tip to reader Jason S. for mentioning the video to me!)

Yesterday I told  you about some AA rumors that were making the rounds.  No actual news has happend, so it could turn out that the rumors were….well…just rumors.    Anyway, this morning Gary from View from the Wing shared some of his thoughts on the rumors in the comments section of that post.  His analysis is definitely worth reading.


  1. Watching the video caused me to wonder about the rumored American Livery change. This plane does not look like a shiny AA plane, especially the rear and tail. Any thoughts on whether this plane will be painted with the new post-bankruptcy look?
