Thank Rob, great to know 3 being built . I would have thought there would be at least one FZ plane coming off the line per month with the size of the order. I know they are desperately in need of airframes when the max does return.


Those 3 in the States were supposed to be 3x that IIRC. They pushed the deliveries forward in light of this delay. And keeping 2 NG’s around longer by extending their leases. The delivery rates was around 1 MAX per 6 weeks or so for the next many years to end up with 236 MAX’s by the next decade.

IIRC unlike the other member of the 737 max, the Max 10 will not have MCAS?

I am interested in this too. I would rather not guess who is waiting on how many.

When these return to service, the narrowbody 2nd hand market will face a glut.

I know UA has 16 Ships 7515-7529... 7530 is still flight testing. 7515-18 are in old livery.
BTW, that first 73J Max will also be going to UA as Ship 7751

Interesting gear on that. It looks like an Embraer gear. What I would like to know is what that giant gap in windows is on the right side.

It looks like a stretched limousine Towncar and I bet it’s as gutless as one too.

Or it could look like a really long school bus... if spirit got their hands on them.

Is the MAX10 exempt from the grounding? It seems to be a different beast.

The Type Certificate has been suspended so the MAX-10 is just as grounded as the other members of the family even though it has been reported it does not need, nor use, MCAS.

I like it, hope it flies decent, but I bet its a bit of a dog haha.

Hopefully the grounding gets lifted soon, its getting tiring!

Wonder why the AC ducts had to take up so much space, means likely 1-2 rows won't have windows. Congrats to Boeing but I doubt this will pose much of a threat to the A321neos, competition is good though so I wish them success.

It will be interesting to see how it will compare against the A321neo. Right now th XLR has 101 tonne MTOW and from what I understand the 10 MAX has 88 tonne MTOW. I wonder if Boeing has any room to grow MTOW?

Anyway, good looking airplane :-D

That's what I was thinking. The ducts appear to be further back, closer to the engines, like they are on other 737s. It would make more sense to have a mid-cabin lav, as opposed to three of them in the back.

Considering it is a plane slated to be delivered to UA that’s what that gap is, but why block out windows for that?

If my eyes aren't playing tricks on me, there seems to be slight outlines of window plugs there.

Guess Boeing has no intention of changing the MAX name either as it's clearly displayed on the -10.

However the larger MAX title in the middle of the fuse from -8 is gone:

I think that was always the intention with the livery update announced in 2018: https://randy.newairplane.com/2018/07/0 ... ur-livery/

Thanks for the excellent post, I had forgotten about that update. The -10 is perfectly in line with the updated livery.

Yet it does leave us with the idea that they could have chosen to delete the MAX title off the nose if they had wanted.

I suppose they did not want the negative publicity of doing so at this point in time.

It seems they were after no publicity at all, and they largely succeeded.

Why do you assume they are leased? Remember that the Silkair brand is being phased out and rolled into SQ. I assume this is a plane from their order.

Because Boeing's site didn't show SQ as having ordered MAX.

Good news on the 777x schedule.

I wonder if the FAA will allow the Max 10 first flight before they've issued their formal RTS notice?

I don’t see why not, it would just be another test flight. Just like like the current MAX 7,8 and 9s that fly daily ever since the grounding.
