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.

You need to change the date from 1958 to 1968.

That is a real credit to any manufacturer.

If not, they should be at 10,003.

WTH!

Did those fall off the back of the truck?

Train. They're shipped by rail to Renton, where the rail cars are parked outside Boeing. The train derailed and they lost a few fuselages.

The aircraft is almost ready to be rolled out. It's made it as far as wing attachment.

At the rate they are selling and building both 737 and A320 families, either could end up meeting or exceeding the production total of the biggest selling airliner of all time the DC-3/C-47.

Assembly is complete and she's heading to paint.

The 737 is now officially the most produced large commercial aircraft ever.
