BREAKING Boeing is resuming production of its 737MAX

Boeing resumed 737 MAX production in Renton.

“Today, teams in Renton started to warm up the factory’s central production line,” said Boeing Commercial Airplanes CEO Stan Deal in a message to employees Wednesday afternoon.

The MAX has been grounded since soon after the deadly crash of an Ethiopian Airlines MAX in March 2019, following the crash of a Lion Air MAX in Indonesia less than five months earlier, with a combined death toll of 346 people.

As engineers worked on a fix for the flawed flight control system that brought down the two airliners, Boeing continued to build the plane at a lower production rate.

Boeing is hoping to win FAA clearance for the MAX in late summer or early fall.
