FAA begins re-certification flights on Boeing 737 MAX

Submitted
 
"A few minutes before 10 a.m. Monday, a Boeing 737 MAX took off from Boeing Field with a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) pilot at the controls, the start of three days of re-certification test flights that mark a major step toward returning the aircraft to passenger service." Presumably this flight, although the aircraft type ID is B737 (737-700), rather than a B37M (737-7 MAX): https://flightaware.com/live/flight/BOE701/history/20200629/1700Z/KBFI/KMWH (www.seattletimes.com) More...

That not 1, but 2 fatal crashes were necessary before Boeing and the FAA called a halt to flight operations of the Max, will leave many to question the safety and reliability of aircraft manufactured by Boeing and the US. A sad situation for all concerned.

I wish them success. As for me, it'll be at least three years without incident before I will even consider flying on a 737-Max

the aircraft appears to be N7201S . For that tail number, Flightaware shows recent flights, since Friday 27 June 2020. Likely with Boeing pilots at the controls firstoff

There are press photos of a 737 MAX looking plane, with a Big "7" on the tail.

I believe we're seeing maiden flights of an aircraft type Boeing 737 MAX 7 operating as flight BOE 701. Again, search tail number N7201S

It looked like a 'Max8' yesterday. Another thread here said they weren't using one of the suspect planes, but it appears they are. *shrug*
