This is Boeing's newest airliner: the 737 Max


Boeing 737 Max 8



Late last year, Boeing rolled out the first completed 737 Max 8 airliner at its assembly facility in Renton, Washington. The company's next-generation single-aisle plane was presented at a ceremony in front of several thousand Boeing employees.

Over the years, the 737 family has become the best-selling airliner in the history of commercial aviation, with more than 13,000 aircraft sold since 1965. It is arguably Boeing's bread-and-butter model.

"Today marks another in a long series of milestones that our team has achieved on time, per plan, together," Boeing Vice President Keith Leverkuhn said in a statement. "With the rollout of the new 737 Max - the first new airplane of Boeing's second century - our team is upholding an incredible legacy while taking the 737 to the next level of performance."
