MIAMI — This week, Boeing has released a video of an amazing display of the 737 MAX flight, which will take place at the 2016 EAA AirVenture in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.
The short film exhibits the highlights from the MAX’s aircraft characteristics, as well as short field takeoff capability and high-banking turns.
The video was recorded at Moses Lake, Washington and Captains Mike Bryan, Greg McCann and Chris Dobb, Boeing test pilots, who were responsible for the spectacular flight demonstration, which was also performed at the Farnborough International Airshow earlier July.
The 737 MAX will “fly farther, increase revenue and provide the lowest seat mile cost of any airplane in its class,” Boeing claims. “The airplane will open new markets and provide exceptional performance for high elevation airports and opens new opportunities for low-cost carrier airlines.”
By the time the MAX enters service with Southwest, the Boeing 737 program will be over 50 years old, making it the longest running and best selling airliner of all time. To date, more than 8,888 737s have been built since it took to the skies for the first time in 1967.
To date, the 737 MAX has reaped 3,266 orders from 68 different customers.
