Probably be SilkAir until further notice, the first aircraft delivered with SQ product will most likely have the SQ livery.

All delivery will still be in Silk Air colour as the merger is only targeted to begin in 2020 when all current hard and soft products have been upgraded to SQ's level.

How quickly are these being built? When is Ethiopian receiving its first Max 8? I recall June, but have not heard about build progress. Is there a spreadsheet that tracks these?

Their 1st is in final assembly now. Should roll out in a week or so.

Here is a picture of the wings I took last week.

Is WN doing customer flights? Prior to Max IIRC the last one they did was in the mid 80's -- they like the gas.

Customer Acceptance Flight is when the airline and appointed personal go out on a flight with Boeing pilots and check the aircraft off before delivery. Making sure there are no issues prior to hand over from Boeing. That is what my understanding of a Customer Acceptance flight. Has nothing to do with PAX.

I'm fully aware of what a customer flight is having flown over a thousand of them, but every Boeing airplane doesn't necessarily get one (unless things have changed since I retired). Especially with 737's many customers choose to take fuel in lieu of a customer flight, Southwest being one of them. And the last customer flight I recall Southwest having was for their first 3 733's they took in December of 1984. They may have done a couple of their first 737 and Max deliveries but that's all. Strictly a "Boeing buy for customer" airline.

Like your photos -- I might be in some of them.

Thanks for the clarification, I know that I’ve seen WN take several after only 1 or 2 flights prior to delivery flight to PAE and always wondered. I know N8704Q a flight post painting before delivery. I assumed N8701Q would do the same

If things haven't changed, every 737 needs a flight post paint prior to delivery which would either be a customer flight or a Boeing post paint flight.

I follow https://boeing-test-flights.blogspot.com/. It's more than the MAX ie has the non-MAX 737s and widebodies too.
Maybe the Memorial Day holiday slowed things up?

Are they going to stick to road movements or is this one of? Is the movement due to increase in production rate?
Secondly, I don't know if this is off topic but do different 737 lines run at different production rates? and do all of them produce Maxs?

Considering traffic around the plant, I cannot see road movements becoming Standard Operating Procedure. Spirit has been falling behind in 737 fuselage production this year due to late supplier deliveries so this might have been a special case.

As I understand it from news articles, Boeing added a third line specifically for MAX while the other two lines handled NGs. These two NG lines would then eventually transition to MAX assembly when the NG backlog is cleared. There is also a fourth line dedicated to the P-8 military model in an adjoining building which also handles wing assembly.

I heard that this is a P-8 frame being transport to Palmdale for testing of some kind. A one off.

Interesting that they would send just a fuselage there. NG won a contract to install the AN/ALQ-240 Electronic Support Measures system in the P-8, but that work is not being done at Palmdale. Boeing had been pitching the P-8 for the J-STARS replacement (an NG program), but the USAF decided not to fund a replacement. Oh well. I expect info will leave eventually and then we can discuss it in Mil-Av. :biggrin:

Delivery flight for TUI Group Belgium a few days ago. I believe this is their 3rd airframe?

The cocooned frame in the pics above is nothing to do with production or engine issues as cited on numerous Twitter and Facebook groups by the usual suspects :roll: . The frame is either the original P8 static test vehicle or the fatigue test vehicle which completed testing at RNT at the end of last year. At least one of them was due to ship to China Lake for the next phase of testing.

First 737 fuselage moved by road since 2012. (Unsure if MAX or NG)


The above article also notes that 2012 move was also a P-8 which was used in live-fire testing.

I wasn't aware that the 'other' frame had already gone in 2012. My source back in 2009 didn't elaborate which frame was to used for which purchase when they rolled out, they were both quoted as "static test frame - will not fly". It would be interesting to know which frame was which.

Are they going to stick to road movements or is this one of? Is the movement due to increase in production rate?
Secondly, I don't know if this is off topic but do different 737 lines run at different production rates? and do all of them produce Maxs?

Regards,
Tbolt

I heard that this is a P-8 frame being transport to Palmdale for testing of some kind. A one off.


This was the P-8A static test frame that completed testing last fall. Being trucked to Plant 42 in PMD for further testing and inspection.

At the current production rate of ~52 per month, Boeing could bang almost all of those out by the end of the year if customers were willing to take them that quickly and they were not also sequencing MAX's on the lines. :faint:

So that probably means about 1 in 9 are still NGs.

I'd say it's considerably more than that. About 2 out of every 3 being built is still an NG. Check Planespotters.

How long before all production except for military production is Maxes rather than NG?

As noted, some 350 NGs are left to be delivered and while Boeing is pushing out more than 50 a month it comes down to how quickly the customers want the frames. Boeing is also seeing more NG to MAX conversions than the reverse, so...

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).
