New Airplane ID

Thu Jul 30, 2009 3:49 am

Hello All,
This is my first post, so here it goes. How can I properly ID this new 737? I know it's a 900 series, but is it a 924/ER or a 94x/ER or neither. How can I tell the difference? Thanks for any information. Bart

Where did you shoot that? If it was Boeing 122 its is LN 2891 and is a -924/ER for Continental

If that is Boeing 127 it is also a -924/ER and is LN 2990 and will also be delivered to CO

I took the photo at Paine Field (PAE). The airplane was performing touch and goes.

I found the Boeing production list but I don't really understand all the entries. What does the line number indicate? Clickhappy, can you explain what Boeing 122 and Boeing 127 means? I'm trying to learn how all these numbers work. Please bear with me.

122 and 127 are Boeing flight numbers.

Line Number is the order in which the plane was actually built (think of it as a serial number)

It's got 2990 on the nose.

Here is the aircraft in question:

33534/2990 Boeing 737-924(ER)(WL) N57439 Continental Air Lines BOE127 FF25Jul09 ex-N1786B

Let me guide you through this:

33534 - Construction Number, this is a number given to each aircraft when it is ordered
2990 - The order in which the aircraft has rolled off the production line
737-924 - Indicates that this is Continental Airlines, "24" is their unique Boeing Code
BOE127 - Boeing Flight Number
FF25Jul09 - First Flight 25th July 2009
N1786B - Test Registration
N57439 - This will be the aircrafts registration once delivered, 439 being the airlines ship number

Planespotters - Is a useful source of information, likewise Skyliner and New Puget Sounds Logs are also very good.
