BFI- Now Home Of 737 & 757?

Tue Jul 17, 2001 6:17 am

I'm seeing all these shots of newly delivered 737NGs and 757s at Boeing Field. I thought that the 737 and 757 were manufactured at Renton. Could it be that they are made in Renton and then flown to BFI for flight testing? Or has the production shifted to BFI completely?

Yes they are built at Renton but once depart on their first flight, the go to BFI for flight testing and delivery prep.

BFI is Boeing Field or King County International. It was Seattle's main airport before SeaTac was built. It is just a few miles north of SeaTac. It is also where the Museum of Flight is located.
