Default Malaysia Airlines 1st B777 history

The first twin jet engine B777 was completed on April 9, 1994 and at that time, there were 147 planes on order with an option for an additional 108 planes from 15 different airlines. The first flight of the B777 was on June 12, 1994 followed by an extensive 11 months flight test program. The 1st B777 (N777UA) was delivered to United Airlines on May 15, 1995 with their 1st revenue flight flown on June 7, 1995 between London (Heathrow) and Washington (Dulles).
On September 3, 1996 rolled out its the 1st B777-200/ER aircraft. On October 7, 1996 the B777-200/ER made its first flight. On April 1, 1997 Boeing flew a B777-2H6/ER (9M-MRA) in Malaysia Airline colors non-stop 12,457 miles from Boeing Field in Seattle eastward to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in 21H 23M. This broke the "Great Circle Distance Without Landing" record for an airliner.

Flew these on the EWR-DXB-KUL in 2003. I recall we had landed in DXB and that same night the Airbus A340-500 A6-ERA was preparing on her maiden flight to Sydney. Saw her at the gate

Wish I could get the aircraft registrations of those two flights to and from EWR. Not sure if I actually flew any of the ill fated jets.
