I already saw the 739ER outside of the Renton Plant once.

More of a plug for the website.

Yes, House colors with Lion Air on the tail.

Wedgetail, a rollout is an official unveiling, but I guess you already knew that. or maybe not.

My son is obsessed with Project Opensky. He literally has every aircraft they make, in almost every livery.

I will be in Amsterdam when this fine, new aircraft rolls out. I will check A.net in the hotel. Actually, I might announce it to the pax on the 767, on the way back. They probably will not know what I'm talking about and demand weather updates for EWR.<-(This happens everytime on TransATL. Flight attendants say that pax are wanted weather every 15 minutes.) I will just say, "Well, EWR looks like shit, as usual. As for Continental news, one of our new aircraft is rolling out the factory today. We will take delivery of them soon enough."

^^Maybe....  Smile

Any idea what time this is scheduled for? I suppose it will happen at the Renton plant?

There are 3 ceremonies planned, one for each shift. The times are as follows (All PST, obviously):
- 3rd shift: 4 a.m.
- 1st shift: 9 a.m.
- 2nd shift: 5 p.m.

My friend and I work up in the Everett plant and we can't get out of work for the ceremony (boo!!), so he and I are possibly going to venture to the 4 a.m. one, then head right to work. I'm excited, this is my first "official" rollout at Boeing! Big grin

I will be in the Seattle area on Tuesday. Is there any good place around Renton to see the aircraft rollout ceremonies that you guys would recommend?

Thanks in advance!

I've never seen a roll out, I usually hear about them a few days after. Should be fun to see the first pictures on here.

25 Post contains images American777 : That is an awesome photo! Thanks for showing us the pic Royal. JOE.
26 KrisYYZ : looking good!! Thanks for the pic. KrisYYZ
27 Post contains images A340Spotter : Nice Royal (though looks a bit iffy on the leveling, wide wide angle shot?)... Had hoped to be up there tomorrow but work beckons. Wife and daughter t
28 Post contains links and images Clickhappy : Yes, it was a 15mm shot, so the hangar is leaning, as usual View Large View MediumPhoto © Royal S King
29 Glom : I thought the 739ER was going to have a middle regular door like the A321?
30 LTU932 : The door is there, but it's covered by the wings. Thanks for the picture, Royal!
31 MCOflyer : Its optional. Is CO getting those doors? MCOflyer
32 Post contains links and images Clickhappy :
33 Post contains images American777 : The extra pair of exit doors, aft of the wings, are some of the new major changes, therefore it's not OPTIONAL and CO is getting those doors no matte
34 Ikramerica : There is some confusion as to where the door is in the minds of some people. It is BEHIND the wing, not in front of it like on the 321, 757, 764, etc.
35 Post contains links and images Leelaw : Here's the photo in the Boeing press release http://www.boeing.com/news/releases/2006/q3/060808b_nr.html
36 Post contains images B742 : Nice looking a/c and colours Mid-2007 is when it will enter service Rob!
37 DAYflyer : One big plane for a 737 for sure. Very nice. Will the 737-900 have the new STOL package that the 800 now gets for GOL?
38 NYC777 : Yes that is standard on the -900ER.
39 Glom : Not only will the 737 not die, but it continues to live big!
40 FriendlySkies : This might be a stupid question, but does the 737-900ER replace the original -900? Basically, will Boeing take orders for the older model?
41 Post contains images RyanairCRL : Clickhappy's pics are better than Boeing's...at least we see the aircraft close-up and not all the people in front of it in a LCC's config, how many
42 TradewindL1011 : Just to elaborate a little, the doors are indeed standard but depending on the seating config, the lower density configurations may have the option t
43 STT757 : Excellent, I can't wait to see them around EWR. I've flown on CO's 737-900s and found them to be the most comfortable coach class flying I've experien
44 Trex8 : anyone know what TOW the customers are getting, Boeings website shows a span from under the highest MTOW for a 738 to about 85K kgs
45 KSUpilot : I'm getting so used to the larger 737s that the -200 and the other shorter variants look strange.
46 Post contains images A388 : Wow, indeed a nice aircraft. Even though it looks similar to the other 737NG types the new aft door makes the 739ER look totally different to me. It e
47 Post contains images WN230 : Its already out. I've tried it, and its sweet!! Anyways, the -900er is a beautiful plane! Long live the 737!
48 LGA777 : Is it me or are the winglits a little bit bigger than on the 700/800 ? Very nice looking Boeing and scheme BTW, I like the extra doors, sorta DC-8-62
49 Brons2 : Indeed. These larger 737s are actually longer (interior cabin wise) than the old 727's.
50 Post contains images N484ER : Beautiful aircraft Does anyone know the specifications of this aircraft in regards to size/length/wingspan/height/passanger capacity, etc... compared
51 Post contains links Brons2 : Um. This is a 737NG aircraft, which consist of all 600/700/800/900 series 737's. Specs are on Boeing's website, here: http://www.boeing.com/commercial
52 MCOflyer : I apologise to earlier statement about the doors being optional. I must add that they look cute on the 739ER. Nearly every 737NG loves their 737's, th
53 SirOmega : Looking at the stats, this plane looks like an excellent replacement for domestic US 752 ops. The 739ER has more seats than a 752 (per Boeing's websit
54 Charlipr : Hopefully they make a 737-900ER BBJ. I think it would be really nice.
55 Ikramerica : No, it doesn't. It's about 10% smaller.
56 TradewindL1011 : Actually, they allready have offered it as the BBJ3 at last year's Dubai Air Show. It Just hasn't been ordered yet.
