737-10 First flight?

Sun Dec 27, 2020 1:29 am

Pardon if this has been posted, but was curious when the 737-10 is scheduled for first flight? I am a medical student so don’t have a lot of time to log in much anymore and could have easily missed it.

I have seen taxi tests but can’t find anything about first flight dates.

The whole program kinda went quiet when covid hit Washington state hard early March. Then some news came out (don’t remember exactly when, my apologies) that they weren’t gonna fly the MAX10 until after the current MAX debacle was all sorted out. I’d say that first flight *could* be soon, but I also wouldn’t be surprised if they delayed it 1 year from their original date to March 2021 (which I would assume is most likely). I’m sure someone else on this forum has some more concrete info, but whether that can be shared is another story. But to be brief: there is no solid date/time frame and everything right now is a rumor.

They can fly it now, but before certification they need to complete a few tasks, such as the third AOA sensor promised to EASA.

And the markers for the stick shaker circuit breakers for the Canadians (but not for the FAA).

To answer the question from the previous thread on how many MAX's are rolling out of final assembly. Based on my observation, we have been seeing 2-3 new planes a week roll out.

Thank you! That would give us a production rate of 8-12 pr month.

So over a 100 per year, but less than 200...

Note, I'm not changing my opinion on too many planes, but that discussion is for the chicken thread. What matters is Boeing must get production over 200/year for economy of scale. Why yes, I'm speaking out of both sides of my mouth. What the market needs and what airframers need are not the same thing.

With the last 2020 breakdown, plus today, yet a 2020 delivery (post was closed), it's been 28 deliveries with N329SL (44479/7717) for AAL. Great way to close the year!

And they are skipping NTU frames and only building what will be delivered.

Those are just what has flown away. Several more could have been ticketed and delivered on paper today, but will fly away over the weekend.

So are the NTU LNs going to be accounted for in some way... ?

Alaska is taking several of the ALC -9 NTU frames from my understanding. Other than that I don't know how they are going to get accounted for.

I wouldn't expect any changes to the "NTU" LNs. Based on Woody's earlier posts the LNs are mostly Chinese and nothing is happening with any of them with the current political situation. They will no doubt filter through at some point. From looking at the Norwegian and remaining UK P-8 LNs and their tentative first flight dates, there are at least 500 fuselages sitting unbuilt between Wichita and Renton so it makes sense to only assemble the ones where the customer has committed to taking delivery of them AND fly them away.

There's still 72 at BFI to deliver (3 delivered on paper)., 226 at Grant County, 2 at PAE (delivered on paper), 10 at Renton, 74 at Kelly Field and 39 at Victorville = 423 frames, c.103 of which are for Chinese operators.

I thank you for the summary. I imagine the Chinese frames will be late. I do not expect them to accept the MAX for a long time. However, there are many others.

They will be accepted by China once the need for the A/C exceeds the need for a political statement. Who knows how long that will be.

That would depend on C919 entry into service.... which isn't looking good. We'll just say I don't expect MAX deliveries to China anytime soon.

I think the Chinese frames will move far sooner if/when Biden gets in the hot seat. As the other guy said, with Chinese it's all about the politics.

A question, there seems to be a recent consensus that the MAX-9 is doing better than many of us expected a year or so ago. Any one out there willing to write a paragraph or two on that?

Thank You for all of the updates you bring Woody, I always look forward to seeing them. Do you have any information on the registrations AA and WN have been assigning their Max fleet? It seems like the suffixes are ever-changing. I know some registration patterns refer to fleet types but I have noticed a change in the pattern with Max deliveries. Instead of AA or AN I see them using SU, SL, SK, etc. as well as Southwest using single letters rather than WN or SW.

Happy New Year and safe flying to all,

I think it was N8739L and it went PAE-PHX. WN has been bringing most of the new Max Aircraft to PHX.

AA Max fleet is 3RA through to 3WM reserved currently, ie. registrations are all N3[random number][random number][sequential fleet letter combo]. Currently up to 3SU.

WN Max fleet are 4 numbers, 72** range for B37M and 87** onwards range for B38M. End letter is random, although there is evidence that some suffix letters are preferred over others.

WN MAX 8s are N87XX and soon to be N88XX.

As someone said, whenever the MAX 7s come online it will be N72XX.

Haven't figured out how the end letter is chosen, does seem more are used more than others (like J, L, M, Z, H, etc)

Don't be swayed by a small number of data points (as in recent deliveries). If carriers ordering a richer mix of the -9 (say, UA and Copa) have been deferring a bit less than carriers ordering the -8 (say AA), you're going to see that change in mix.

Thank you both for the reply. It all makes sense once you crack the pattern! When working, I noticed little placards above 1L with the differentiating letters that placed the planes into airline-specific codes for specific fleet type or subfleet. I didn't know that it became this complex. Reminds me of these randomized registrations.

Looking at the Buzz registrations is satisfying! All in order and completing the alphabet as each plane is built.

WN changed when they started getting 800s and purchasing other airlines. Most of the 700s are NxxxWN or NxxxSW (plus some original ones that end in SA, or things like LV and MX/RR) and in order were the 700s, then 400s, then 200s, then 900s series. But the AirTran planes became N77xx and planes from other carriers became N78xx similar to the 800 numbering system. Some other carrier planes also use N5xxWN which I never found out why. Guess it was available after the other series ran out.

The 800s were N83xx (ETOPS) and N86xx and N85xx for non ETOPS with a "random" letter at the end. Except for one, that confuses everyone...N500WR for Will Roger's 500th delivery at WN.

The MAX 8 fleet will be the same as the 800s with one sequence being ETOPS and the other non ETOPS.

It's pretty fun stuff, once you know the WN numbering system you know exactly what A/C type it is from the tail number alone.

From what I understand all the N87** MAXs have provisions for ETOPS and will eventually be all ETOPS. After 8751, there will be no more N87** tail numbers. The N88** tail numbers will not have ETOPS provisions. I don’t know if the MAX7s will have ETOPS provisions.

So far SWA has taken delivery of 2 new builds. The rest have been storage MAX's.
N8746Q is a new build that rolled in July after they resumed production.
N8747Q which rolled out in Sep

N8745K was ferried by Boeing pilots to PAE and delivered on 12/27/2020 to ATS. This was just a repositioning flight to PHX

Currently 7672 Somon NTU is in B5. I haven't seen 169564 in a while nor has my spotter friends after asking them.

Thanks :). In that case I think it's been re-registered, or about to be (7672). Have you or anyone else had any sightings of 169564 at all ? I've not found any photos online. Seems strange why such a long delay when later ones have long since been and gone, unless some issues occurred during assembly.

7672 was wearing a temp reg of N1780B when I photographed it on Jan 1st.

I usually snap a shot of every P-8 that rolls out for record keeping, but 169564 is one I missed.

Don't want to sound picky, but these are for Malta Air, the Ryanair subsidiary, not Air Malta.

Thanks for all your great updates Woody.

Quick correction, it’s Malta Air (Ryanair) instead of Air Malta, which is another airline. Kind of ridiculous to have such close names. I don’t think I realized they were getting their own livery.

Great pics though thank you for sharing.

Am I right in thinking none of these newly painted MAXs has any type identification painted on the exterior (“Boeing 737-8 MAX”, or some variant thereof)?

Ryanair removed it from their aircraft. But all others that have rolled out since production has resumed, still state MAX somewhere on the aircraft.
