    So you're saying Boeing put a new engine on the 737, put in larger displays in the cockpit, didn't update the automation or overhead panel at all, and then tried to call it a 757?

    Ooooh I'm looking forward to another stimulating ten pages of pilots giving engineers a few pointers. Maybe we'll get some stock tips, too.

    Geez even GM updates their pickups faster than Boeing advances the 737 series.

    Or just the regular old JC snark...either way, the thread will suck, lives won't change and Derg has to charge more for JC membership.

    After the nuclear holocaust, cockroaches and 737's will be the only thing left.

    This is about as exciting as watching a Keeping up with the Kardashians episode. I'll give it the same amount of attention as well.

    Very interesting that the -9MAX flies before the -8MAX is delivered. Fully painted Southwest 737-8MAX's have been huddling in the corner of RNT for a while now.

    So lets say they put a brand new overhead panel in it with one button that says "Do overhead panel stuff" and one guage with a range of markings from "Overhead panel stuff not done." to "Overhead panel stuff done." It would be the world's greatest airplane, right? ;)

    That capture indicates that it is a STS-type climber.

    Publicity stunt!

    Negative. None have been delivered although the first one to be delivered is now at BFI.

    A few years down the line, the split winglets will grow to split wings (think x-wing) and then continue to morph into bi-planes, bringing aviation full circle.
