WASHINGTON- A new Boeing plane in the MAX family, 737-10, took off on its first flight, which is a new phase in the return to operation of those mid-range planes, which were not allowed to fly for 20 months due to two serious accidents.
The plane took off at 10:07 local time from Renton in the federal state of Washington, the company announced, Reuters reports.
Boing many tests still have to pass before the first copies are delivered to customers, probably in 2023 if all goes well.
This largest MAX aircraft can carry up to 230 passengers on flights of 6,110 kilometers. It is selling at a price of 134.9 million US dollars. It was conceived as a competition with the Airbus A321neo.
The first deliveries were scheduled for 2020, but this has already been postponed twice.
The new Boeing 737 MAX plane was withdrawn from traffic worldwide after two accidents in 2018 and 2019 in which 346 people were killed, but several regulators allowed it to fly again at the end of 2020.Tanjug
Let’s remind Boeing announced last year that it plans to stop production of the cult model 747.
