The GE-90-115B on the Boeing 777-300R is listed at a thrust of 115,000 pounds on take off. Remember having a high trust engine doesn't mean a plane
has to be "High- Preformance". If it's a large aircraft, it will require a lot of thrust to fly.
For the Record, the J-58 used on the SR-71 Blackbird has a maximum thrust of 32,500 lbs. in full afterburner. Just goes to show that engine thrust
alone isn't what makes an airplane fast!
