Should wrap up next year.

According to Boeing's numbers there were only about 250+/-left to build as of the end of April so only about 220+/- end of June at about 33+/- a month. That rate will decrease, so I would guess sometime during the 4th quarter next year we'll se our last NG depart (not counting P-8's).


Outside the factory last Thursday was the following fuselages.

7039 NG
7040 MAX
7041 NG
7042 MAX
7043 MAX
7044 MAX
7045 MAX

Boeing should be at 560/year for both or 47/month. So that 33 per month needs to drop fast. Otherwise, the ramp down rate in 2019 will exceed contract allowables. It all comes down to LEAP engine production. CFM is doing well, but not perfect.
You only have the first amendment with the 2nd. If you're not going to offend someone with what you say, you don't have the 1st.

Went by the Interbay holding yard and there were 5 more fuselages that arrived.

7046 NG
7047 NG
7048 MAX
7049 MAX
7050 MAX

So out of the last 12 Fuselages that arrived at Renton, only 4 were NG's. So it looks like a 2:1 ratio of MAX to NG's based on this small sampling.

Have they converted the line to assemble both Maxs and P-8s? as a lot of P-8 orders are still left.
I am studying the 737 production system for my Masters project, any good books/sources are welcome.

I'm no expert but that line is still exclusively for P-8s for the most part. That MAX was towed and put in the front of it for some reason (unknown to me) but an exception to the rule certainly. It also was not on that assembly line from the beginning.

Not uncommon to have a NG or MAX in position 1 on the P-8 line for additional work. Sometimes it’s there for a reskin due to something that happen on the final assembly line. But other reasons are possible as well.

With almost 50 straight serial numbers being 8's, any ideas on when any 7's or 9's might be loaded up? I'd think United might have a couple more that would need to be coming up relatively soon.

Per AV Week article (behind the wall) 40-45% of 737 deliveries this year will be Max's with NG's terminating late 2019 to early 2020.

Based on the amount of MAX fuselages verses NG’s arriving, I believe it. Only if CFM can just get caught up, there wouldn’t be so many gliders.

Seeing that Shandong 737MAX being towed over that bridge in reply 465 I wonder why that bridge was built so narrow. There seems to be no room for error on that bridge when a 737 is moving on that bridge. I hope there will never be a towing accident there.

Was that bridge originally built for something else and later strengthened so the 737 could be moved on that bridge?

Also, I haven't seen KarelXWB post here in a while or am I mistaken? I hope everything is okay.

the bridge was rebuilt years ago and with it's predecessor was the only way between the factory and the field for all planes since about 1943.. and there has never been an accident with the thousands of planes crossing it (including the 747's brought in for refurbishment after certification).

In taking a second look that may not be the bridge between the factory and the field, but a newer bridge between the 737 preflight area and the field that was built in the 1980's and it's wide.

It's the bridge from factory at the far north of the field. The photo was taken from Renton Rowing Center jetty.

It is indeed the bridge between the factory and field. I took the picture from the pier at the rowing center. Also their is plenty of room. The angle makes it look like it’s narrow.

With almost 50 straight serial numbers being 8's, any ideas on when any 7's or 9's might be loaded up? I'd think United might have a couple more that would need to be coming up relatively soon.

UA’s next three Max9s are LN 7173, 7201, 7253. LN 7076 shows as latest start on the FAL. Given production rate of 52-ish/month, 7173 should start mid/late August.
