General Electric got down to work with three risk-sharing partners: Snecma of France (23.5%), IHI of Japan (9%) and FiatAvio of Italy (7%).
The GE90 first flew on 06 December 1993 on the wing of General Electric's 747-100 testbed, and was mounted under a 777 wing in October 1994.
The GE90 became the world's largest engine ever produced for the commercial aviation with a fan size of 3.12m (123in) – that is, approximately equal to the diameter of the fuselage of a Boeing 727.
