Any signs of the first Max 10 at RNT? I recall the fuselage arriving sometime in 1Q '19,
but I assume it's in storage somewhere in the factory?

That is one of the test regs that Boeing uses.

Surely it can’t be legal to have the same number in multiple airplanes simultaneously? Or are they not considered airplanes yet since they are still in “production”? What happens if they need to fly 2 of them on the same day?

They change one or more of the numbers with a sticker over the top. Eg. one will fly as the 'default' N1786B, another one may be N1787B, a 3rd frame on the same day could be N1796B. There are specific groups of temporary numbers for specific flight types.

Good day everyone, if I remember correctly, Caribbean Airlines will have taken delivery of their first 737MAX in Q4 of this year so I assume this first 737MAX should be in (final) production now. Are there any photos of this bird?

The first one I'm seeing is mid way in the 7900s so a long time until it hits the factory yet. But with all the white tails floating about at the moment they might take one of those but I'm not aware of any currently.

I count more than 50 tails on that bottom picture (Thanks, Royal, by the way!). What would be the approximative value of such an inventory?

Once MWH is full I would expect SAT might be next. No idea how much empty space they have there though. Wonder how long till they have to start using non-Boeing facilities.

Once the FAA says go...at what rate can 737's be delivered? I have no idea what the process is but I have a feeling there is a little more to it then telling the airlines to go to MWH and pick up their jets. Do the airlines have to take them all at once. I think most airlines have additional work to do on each jet before entry into service and they might not want them all at once. Is that an issue?

They’ve already got Kelly Field to capacity, I think. Not SAT, which is the commercial airport.

think i remember reading those coming off FAL are priority for deliveries with the aim to clear the parked at a rate of 10 to 15 a month! I'm sure that's fluid and subject to change, but dont think updating and readying the parked craft is as straightforward as some think!

Even the "chistmas tree" alert ramp is being used for storage.

UA puts new deliveries though a 10 day (give or take) induction process where proprietary software, equipment and other gizzwizzes are installed. I’m sure they have special plans in place when they get the green light, but I can’t see tech ops working more than two at a time... Can but wait/see..

There will have to be a phased delivery scheduled due to constraints both on Boeing's and the airline's side. Airlines won't have enough pilots and acceptance personnel to take their entire backlog nor will Boeing have the staff to support it.

We will also almost certainly see a rolling re-certification process from the various regulatory agencies. So should the FAA be first, the other agencies (EASA, Transport Canada, etc.) will need to issue their own Return to Service directives before airlines under their jurisdiction can start to take delivery.

Southwest said their priority would be their newly built but undelivered frames. Have no idea how many frames we're
talking about.

Once those are in service they would then turn their attention to the 34 jets in storage at VCV
