Rollout in Renton

This has been a huge week for the 737 MAX program. Flight testing wrapped up on the MAX 8, we gave you a first look at the proposed MAX 10X, and today— the first MAX 9 rolled out of the paint hangar in Renton.

Thousands of employees gathered to mark the milestone. The airplane will now go through system checks, fueling and engine runs before starting its own round of flight testing.


The MAX 9 is scheduled to enter service in 2018. To see more on how this airplane enhances our MAX family, check out this webpage.
