7000th 737NG Question

Fri Nov 30, 2018 1:27 pm

With line numbers continuing in sequence for the MAX and NG has the 7000th frame been delivered yet or if not who will be taking that delivery? Also when is the last planned delivery of an NG?

Yes. The 7000th B737 has been delivered to Flydubai in October 2011!

L/N 7000 C/N 64992 B737-8 MAX EI-FYH NORWEGIAN AIR is active and has been delivered at 26 June 2018.
No info about the last delivery of an NG.

We're beyond 10,000 737's at this point:

Right. But Boeing restarted their L/N sequence for the NG. However they did not for the MAX. Hence the reference to the Norwegian plane.



Edit for clarity

Maybe I’m missing something, but the thread title clearly referenced the 7000th 737NG. So, MAX shouldn’t count, nor should the tally of all 737s ever built.
I was raised by a cup of coffee.

That is correct. I am looking for the 7000th NG.

there are still some NG's to deliver.
Southwest has got all their -700s by now?
Also Ryanair should have still something to be delivered.
On a side note, I was on -8AS EI-GJX last month PSA-EIN, very nice new "MAX" interior with led lightning and everything.
EIN-PSA was a way older frame, cannot remember the registration.

I think AS still has two or three -900ER's to be delivered.

If you don't want to count Max's then maybe we shouldn't count ER's either? (Just spit balling, it's all semantics as far as I'm concerned.)

Edit to clarify, I understand what the OP is asking for now, but trying to compartmentalize a type that has been revised so many times is a bit picking and choosing.

How are the P8's serialized when they roll out? Are they commercial line units that get converted by BDS?

They are built as P8s with no windows. The wiring and all external antennae/lumps/bumps are done on the P8 line at Renton and they usually get painted there as well. First flight takes them over to BFI where they are temporarily parked in the MFC (Military Flight Center) compound at the southern end of the airport and then they get towed across the street to the Isaacson Thompson site overnight for interior installation which typically takes around 4 months. The Thompson site is where 737 Classics lns 4 to 271 were built before production moved to Renton in 1970.

An interesting tidbit regarding the NG numbers is that ln 6000, TC-JVZ with Turkish Airlines is marked with "6000th BOEING NEXT-GENERATION 737" decals but this is actually incorrect. The 6000th NG is ln 6007, B-7976 with Shandong Airlines because there are 7x 737-8 Max frames prior to ln 6000. :smile:

If my counting is correct (which it might not be), ln 7362 will be the 7000th NG which is a China Eastern order, probably for lease to China United.

Any speculation on how much longer the NG line will be open?

Thank You. I've often wondered exactly where the production facility was for those early Line Number 737s before production moved to Renton. So where were 1-3 built?

At this "Thompson site" is that a newer structure that replaced the early 737 production facility? Just interested in the history as I've driven by there many times over the past couple of years (and over the past few decades).

The first 3x 737 Classic frames were built at Plant 2, which was demolished in 2010. Rather than do all the typing myself I shall just refer you to a wikipedia article which will give you a good overview of the aircraft built there : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boeing_Plant_2

Thank you. I will trust your counting. L/N 7362 should be 7000th NG. Does anyone dispute this fact?

I believe that all but the first couple of hundred of the 737 fuselages were built in Wichita (Boeing & now Spirit) and shipped via train to Seattle for final assembly.
Boeing Flown: 701,702,703;717;720;721,722;731,732,733,734,735,73G,738,739;741,742,743,744,747SP;752,753;762,763;772,773,788.
