Boeing delivers 8,000th 737
Boeing delivered the 8,000th 737 to come off the production line to United Airlines, marking another important milestone for Boeing’s best-selling airplane. The airplane, a Next-Generation 737-900ER (Extended Range), features a special logo. The 737 is the first commercial airplane in history to reach this delivery milestone. The program has a strong backlog with more than 3,700 airplanes on order, including 1,934 orders for the new 737 MAX. United was the first airline to order and take delivery of the 737-200. Since 1965, United has taken delivery of more than 550 737s and operated nearly every model.
