FWIW: 9565 was definitely the next off the line after 9526 as it was behind it in the Renton production hangar in Oct-22.
Who knows the next frames for arajet? Should take 5 this year Not for a long time. Mid 8700s LNs is next one. some sources saying the first coming by July and then 1 for the next 4 months. Might be some Flair rejects that are in desert storage. No new-builds before mid 8700s if they are 8s. I doubt...Jump to post

A little off topic, I see that in the last week 2 MAX7 have taken their first flight, could something be coming in the not to distant future? THANK YOU for all of your updates!!

They were reassigned new numbers. There's plenty of photos online of them wearing their new numbers with the old one partially visible underneath, check woody's pics. The original LNs won't be built (imo). There's plenty in the 8200 and 8300 block that won't get built either (imo) as detailed on my ...Jump to post
Might be just an unused spare they had laying about from the previous NTU order It's a freshly painted rudder and winglets. I don't have an update on the frame since it was last known to be for S7, but if this doesn't come out of the paint hangar at PDX in full Qatar Airways livery I'll be shocked.Jump to post
All the 737s have left SKF now. They are all at MWH or BFI. Last one to leave was LN 8190 for Air China, yesterday.Jump to post

There is no wondering about it. 1. Each time an aircraft is pulled out of storage, is that reported on this thread? 2.

on the 787, it's actually greater than the assembly hours. It seems QR is about to take delivery of LN1031 A7-BHI. Meanwhile LN1093 A7-BHN was flown out of storage VCV PAE.

Matt Cawby on his blog has posted a snippet of an audio exchange related to the first flight.

What is the significance of that phrasing? Is...Jump to post
Another point I thought that was interesting is that Boeing is currently building LN 1736. With production at 2 a month, how is it possible that LN 1784 will even be ready for a flight in July? The LN =/= the build sequence. The 737s to become P8s are up to 1000 LNs higher than the standard 737s an...Jump to post
@ "CALTECH" thanks for posting the updated 737 production lists. That has confirmed a couple of B39M queries I had. Be advised that your LNs for the -10s beyond N27753 are likely all wrong though as many of them in the list are already assigned to 8s for other customers (from Boeing's int...Jump to post

Any Southwind (?) updates on 737 Max? The earlier mentioned TC-GRO (Blue Air ntu) seen parked off-site at Boeing Field a few days ago with Turkey reg. Confirmed for Southwind or still unconfirmed for now?
Thanks for the pics @ VCVspotter. I didn't know you were 'West Coast Aviation' ! I loosely check that account for new-build Boeing pics at VCV but not had any luck with these yet they were already reported elsewhere. I guess you just hadn't uploaded them yet.Jump to post
Any locals know what's happening with Bonza Airline? Are they dead now?

Two of the Chinese frames have been repainted in AA grey. :scratchchin: Good call. Let's get those frames moving. Being held hostage by a Communist Government whims is not a pathway forward.

I've lost track of that spreadsheet, are all of the earlier Lots delivered? Are they getting the Cert program refurbished yet? Like a year ago there were some of the early production one's not delivered, but all the later ones were. I'm sure it was due to rework. It seems to be quiet around the RVS...Jump to post
Does anyone think TLC will close and all the biz move to MEX once all the airliner traffic is forced to use NLU ? I'm sure MEX would be more attractive to the CEOs than TLC as they likely all go to CDMX for business. Any locals to comment?Jump to post

462 and 464 are used to check the AAR is working correctly on the new-builds. I doubt they'll ever be delivered unless Boeing stops selling them. 461 463 and 842 probably nothing happening with those until 008 and 010 have left the nest. 010 has been painted for some time but I think 008 was still g...Jump to post
So the livery is consistent with what was depicted in the link in post #52 of this thread rather than being standard Atlas livery.

On the KC-46, BCA sells a 767-2C to BDA for modification. Often this happens years before delivery to the USAF by BDA.

True. The amount of long time parked undelivered MAX-es has slowly shrunk to about 200, but this remaining set seems increasingly problematic.
