Spirit Aerosystems announced today that they shipped the 10,000th 737 fuselage from their Wichita facility to Boeing in Renton. Spirit builds 70% of
the 737, including the fuselage. The fuselage will become a 737 Max 8 for Southwest. Once built, the 737 becomes the first aircraft in the jet age to
reach 10,000 deliveries.
The timing of the milestone is almost perfect too. The 737-100 entered service February 10th, 1968 with Lufthansa.
