You don't see this very often when West bound on NATE South of Greenland in the Winter.

Looks like a B777. That older widebodies were (capable of) a lot faster.

It's a B77F, a -200 freighter. Like most freighters it's heavy at 631.9. As you can tell it'll burn off another 65 of fuel before landing with a Vref flaps 30 of 150 (10 below MGLW). The CI is 80.

Starting to miss the freighters with the exotic destinations and gourmet catering? :-)))
