Boeing has published pictures showing the assembly of the new Boeing 777X, which the company says will be the world's largest single-engine jet, with more capabilities than conventional aircraft.

The aircraft inside a huge enclosure appeared to be an incomplete structure, where flight engineers were doing more design work.
But the progress made by Boeing does not mean the plane will take off on Tuesday, and will undergo internal and external tests for two years.
