According to Evan, it's obsolete.

I guess that short little fire-plug looking one is obsolete...half the engines of a 707...half the fuselage length...

Of course, I guess we could say the same about the DC-9-15.

Boeing unveils latest 737 airliner in Renton

The most ubiquitous airliner in the history of flight just welcomed the newest member of its family at Boeing's Renton factory Monday morning, just south of Seattle.

Hundreds, if not thousands, of Boeing employees were on hand to get a glimpse of the first completed 737 MAX 7, the third and longest range of the MAX line.

The new jet, with a capacity of up to 172 passengers and a range of 3,850 nautical miles, is set to begin flight testing in the coming weeks, with first deliveries to Southwest Airlines scheduled for 2019.

Boeing will start with a variety of systems checks and tests on the flight deck before taking the new plane to the skies. It will be one of two 737 MAX 7s used for testing.

Boeing's 737 first entered service in 1968, four years after its inception as a short-haul jetliner to supplement the 727. Throughout a bevy of variations over the intervening years, the 737 became the best-selling commercial airliner in history.

The 737 MAX 8 entered service in 2017 and the MAX 9 is set for deliveries later in 2018, according to Boeing. A MAX 10 variant, announced at last year's Paris Air Show, will be the largest of the 737 MAX family, with room for 230 passengers. That plane is set to enter service in 2020.
