Airborne 12.12.18: BBJ 777X!, Lunar Landing Checklist, R66 Cargo Hook

Also: Virgin Orbit Update, FAA-Super Bowl LIII, Gone West: WASP Alma Fornal, Skydiving Hall Of Fame

Could this be ANN’s next corporate aircraft? Boeing Business Jets is launching the BBJ 777X, a new Boeing Business Jet model that can fly more than halfway around the world without stopping, farther than any other business jet. Customers can choose between two models: the BBJ 777-8 and BBJ 777-9. The BBJ 777-8 offers the longest range of 11,645 nautical miles.
