There’s few aircraft that can claim to have flown 50,000,000 miles in their life but G-ZZZC is part of the fairly exclusive club! Not only this but G-ZZZC was the first 777 in Europe!
G-ZZZC started life all the way back in 1995. Remember the 1995? Michael Jackson was releasing Earth Song and DVDs were only just announced. How times have changed… Well towards the end of the year, G-ZZZC took off from Boeing in the US powered by two GE90s to be delivered and start life flying passengers all around world. She didn’t stop for the next 25 years.
This is one of the 777s which recently made its way through the disassembly process here in Wales with many of the parts being carefully looked after as spares for active 777s so it’s not the end for G-ZZZC, her parts might well be back on a 777 you fly on soon. Fortunately, there’s a number of parts which have been saved and are now available in our shop. See if there’s anything you like and keep tagging us on Instagram – @planereclaimers
