Also amazing is the fact that SWA has operated about 10% of the 5,000, or 500 frames. We had about 50 -200s (until the last of them were retired a year ago), and we have about 450 in the fleet now...

If any airline would paint a special livery, it would be WN! Maybe it will be similar to the dreamliner livery? Idk, but congrats to Boeing on what will probably remain the most successful commercial aircraft line ever!

Copngrats to Boeing!!!

5000? That's peanuts. Ford produced over 1.5 million Ford Pintos alone in 6 years.
|Quoting GARPD (Reply 15):|
That means that fuselage cross section has been used for at least 8000 air frames

Cessna has built alot of Skyhawks, altho the figure escapes me at the moment.
|Quoting Silver1SWA (Reply 29):|
Judging from the image posted, I doubt this aircraft will feature a fully special color scheme. The regular winglets are already installed and on all of WN's 737-700s in special colors, the winglets are left grey.
|Quoting OPNLguy (Reply 31):|
Good point... Maybe they'll use the same "5 Grand" that's on the pictured B-17 in a "retro" application as decals on either side, under the cockpit windows...
|Quoting SkyHarborsHome (Reply 28):|
I LOVE how the WN winglets are already painted and assembled. If they are doing a special paint job (I hope they do) then it must not involve the winglets as we have seen with recent custom jobs or they could just repaint them, I guess.
|Quoting TheGreatChecko (Reply 36):|
Maybe a flyby or two somewhere to show it off...WN is also a fan of those!
|Quoting SkyHarborsHome (Reply 38):|
The best was when Maryland One did its flyby at LUV and somehow it was reported that an aircraft had gear problems. There are plenty of media war threads so not trying to make another one, it just made me laugh.

Does Boeing use a moving production line for the 737?
