A Boeing 777-9 prototype is at the Roswell Air Center for about seven days of flight testing scheduled to end sometime around April 28, according to Roswell Air Center Director Scott Stark. The twin-engine jet with its folding wings is about 251 feet long and costs about $442 million, according to Boeing. The aircraft features new interior architecture and is designed to have 10% lower emissions and fuel use than comparable airplanes. (Lisa Dunlap Photo)
