Tallying the numbers

Our final numbers for 2016 are out today. We finished the year with a flurry of activity, resulting in the delivery of 748 airplanes and 668 net orders. Our backlog now stands at 5,715 airplanes.


During 2016, we also delivered the 500th 787, grew our 737 MAX customer base to 82, witnessed the first flight of the 737 MAX, opened the 777X Composite Wing Center and started 787-10 final assembly.

We’ve already turned our complete focus to the year at hand— meeting our customer commitments and executing on our development programs. I look forward to an exciting 2017.
