Orbit Airlines 737 MAX-9 Delivery Flight

Recommended Posts

Delivering a brand new 737 MAX-9 for Orbit Airlines! Taking this bird straight from the factory in Renton to Portland, Oregon to begin revenue service. 

Many thanks to Enko for making this texture!

 

Parked at the factory surrounded by ground equipment. Weather certainly could be a lot better...

Takeoff! That was pretty darn quick. Then again, we aren't carrying any pax or cargo...

Yeah, this weather could really be better.

Beautiful sunrise! And man, do I love the scream of the LEAP-1B engines (I'm using an addon soundpack if anyone is wondering).

(Un?)fortunately, MCAS is not simulated in the TDS 737 MAX (across all variants). No trim issues besides my hair needing one 😁
