Boeing 737 Corrosion Test?

These trains go by my house about three times a month headed from Kansas City to Washington, sad picture....but it looks like their trying to swim? I'd love to stick some wheels on one with a Airstream logo and go tooling down the highway......might be tough to find camping though..........

It looks like a self contained mess. They can eat the soybeans and use the methanol on the other derailed cars to clean the fuselages when they get them out of the water...
Nobody was hurt, and nothing got spilled out of its cars in the derailment, both good things.

A new submersible cabin-pressure test?

Looks like the Max fuselage. One of these deliveries is going to a wee bit late.

Manufacturer's list prices for Boeing 737's with typical options (Note: Does NOT includes engines, which are over $10-million each; and they have two):

737-700 = $76.0-million
737-800 = $90.5-million
737-900ER = $96.1-million
737 MAX 7 = $85.1-million
737 MAX 8 = $103.7-million
737 MAX 9 = $109.9-million

If you order one today, there is a 7 year backlog in orders; and the delivery date will be sometime in 2021!

I'll bet there are about three unhappy customers in the coming weeks.

Good news for the Boeing shareholders, but my 737NG pilot is not excited about his airline's MAX order. He thinks Boeing could have done more to improve the '37. Not that it's a bad airplane, but he claims its more hype than reality - at least from the pilot's perspective.
