Default B737Max9 First Flight

The MAX 9, a stretch of the 737 MAX 8, took off on its maiden flight from Renton Field in Washington State at 1052 on Friday (US time) and landed at Seattle’s Boeing Field 2 hours and 42 minutes later at 1334. Boeing said in a statement the first flight tested the aircraft’s flight controls, systems and handling qualities, with Captain Christine Walsh and Captain Ed Wilson at the controls.

First delivery was expected in 2018.

Powered by two CFM International LEAP-1B engines, it has been designed with a maximum range of 3,515nm for up to 220 passengers in a single-class or 178 passengers in a two-class configuration, according to Boeing figures.
