Video: Storage places are full of Boeing 737 MAXs in Renton

Seattle, Washington - Although Boeing has suspended the 737 MAX deliveries the production of the aircraft continues at the manufacturer's Renton plant. A recent video shows the planes parked at the storage place.

There is hardly room left to park the new 737 MAXs at Renton. Boeing has started flying completed 737 MAXs to another site in San Antonio, Texas.

Ferry flights are exempt from the current flight ban.

Boeing is currently building 42 737 MAX jets per month, which means that one or more aircraft are rolling out of the assembly line per day. This number was 52 before the 737 MAX jets have been grounded after the second deadly crash in Ethiopia.

It is not yet clear when the aircraft will return to service and the deliveries will resume. Early this week, an official from the Federal Aviation Administration said the approval process of the aircraft's updated anti-stall software could be pushed to October or beyond.

Boeing will, therefore, have to find new storage places for dozens and possibly even hundreds of new 737 MAXs in the coming months.

K5 News journalist Ted Land captured the following video from a helicopter over Renton on May 24. The video shows only a part of all parked 737 MAXs.
