Interesting Trivia

Recommended Posts

Was brousing the Boeing site and came across a triva page for the B737 series aircraft. Quite a bit of neat info...Here are a few:-I thought this one was the biggest eye catcher, most would think that with all the new tech in the NG's they would have more wire in them, but when you think about it, it does make since...There are approximately 36.6 miles of wire on the Next-Generation 737-600/-700/-800/-900 models, four miles less than the 737-300/-400/-500 models. The 737 fleet has produced more than 124 million hours of revenue service for its operators -- equivalent to about 12,400 years of continuous service.On the average about 1,200 737s are in the air at all times; one takes off every 5.3 seconds. Airlines and other operators have ordered more than 5,100 Boeing 737s, with more than 4,000 delivered. Currently more than 214 airline operators in 100 countries fly 737s. Think Boeing hit a homerun, errr...glandslam with this one more...http://www.boeing.com/commercial/737family/pf/pf_facts.htmlAlso I didn't know but Boeing is now offering the Civilian version of the Navy C-40A. They are calling it the B737-700C. Which bacicly is a pax/trash haulin' BBJ w/o winglets, though the Civi version will probably have them as an option.:-outtahttp://www.flightsimnetwork.com/dcforum/Us...43942b48d2b.jpgThere is a fine line between "hobby" and "mental illness".
