777X

The numbers on the engine are a bit mind numbing.

Quote:
The engine includes a composite fan more than 11 feet in diameter, tucked into a 14-and-a-half-foot engine capsule, or nacelle. It has 16 composite fan blades, and hangs on the 777X's 118-foot wings which make the new planes the largest two-engine jets in the world.
A 737 fuselage is only 13.1 feet in diameter. This plane would fit inside the 777 engine nacelle.
