Boeing 737 MAX 9 takes maiden flight
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.
Well it is us who have to fly it.
Yep. Thanks Southwest....
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.
Not yet. That is the MAX 10 coming out next.
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.
*changes the channel*
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.
Shut yower pie hole and wedge yourself like a bullied kid into a junior high school AV closet.
Whatever it takes, just don't take away my side stick and tray table!
I thought Alaska has been flying them.
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?
Ill be honest. I thought this thing already did its maiden voyage a few years ago.
That capture indicates that it is a STS-type climber.
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.
Separate names with a comma.
